Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco seemed irritated in yesterday's Press conference, suggesting he was “surprised" by talks to sell top scorer Dzeko.
“Negotiations are normal when the transfer window is open. I speak to the Coach every day, we are always together. It's normal that when the window closes, we are all a little stressed, especially ahead of a game," Monchi told Mediaset Premium.
“We are very happy with the way the Coach works and understands the movements that the club makes.
“I saw Dzeko in the locker room, he's playing today, so we are in the same situation as other days. We are calm and happy he is here, hope he can continue building on the last game and score another goal.
“People ask about everything except the match. I know the market makes news, but we are all concentrated on the match."
He continued: “Edin's situation is not a difficulty. Edin is here, Edin played against Sampdoria on Wednesday and he plays tonight. We are in the same situation as eight days ago. I thought when a director speaks in Italy, people believe him, but evidently I have to earn that!"
So, Monchi was asked, does that mean Dzeko will stay at Roma?
“He's here now."
