AS Roma players have been left in no doubt where management's loyalties lay.

Roma chiefs Walter Sabatini and Franco Baldini both steamed into the players at training yesterday, demanding victory tonight against Torino.

Zdenek Zeman is safe, says Corriere dello Sport, who watched on as both directors made it clear to the players there was nowhere to hide.

"You have to take nine points in the next three games. No ifs, ands or buts. There is no time to lose. You are a strong team and you have to prove it," blasted Sabatini.
