Roma chief Baldini: Zeman was a mistake

AS Roma GM Franco Baldini has branded the appointment of Zdenek Zeman a "mistake".

Roma are preparing for the Coppa Italia final today with Aurelio Andreazzoli in charge.

"The season has not given us the results we were hoping for considering the potential of the squad, but if the Coppa Italia arrives then it can still be considered positive," Baldini told TG1.

"I am not so much disappointed by the results as by certain decisions we didn't get right, above all that we weren't able to send the right message when we knew how much needed to be reconstructed.

"We had unconditional support from the fans with minimal protests, but we were unable to create an atmosphere in which it is possible to grow.

"I made at least four or five unconfessable errors, but to reveal them I'd have to make certain judgments on people and things.

"I can say that Zeman was not the right choice. We wanted to give the fans a spectacle, but were not ready to offer guaranteed results."
