Roma boss Zeman full of admiration for Fiorentina

AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman is full of admiration for Fiorentina after Saturday's win.

The Stadio Olimpico crowd was given a six-goal thriller with end-to-end enjoyment for the whole 90 minutes.

"It was a good performance against a good Fiorentina side, as they play and allow their opponents to play. If teams let us play, then we take advantage," said the Coach.

"We have now had four consecutive victories, but Roma always created plenty of chances. Now we are improving in terms of winning back possession. If you don't have the ball, then you must go looking for it.

"It also becomes easier if we play with three strikers who help out in midfield. We have been trying to play this way since the start. There were a few mistakes at the back again tonight, as the second goal was avoidable.

"My tactics need effort and motivation, so tonight the team proved it really wanted to play good football. In order to win you have to do something beyond the norm."
