Roma coach Andreazzoli hits back at Osvaldo critics
AS Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has been defended by coach Aurelio Andreazzoli.
Osvaldo has come in for harsh criticism this season.
Andreazzoli said: "Osvaldo is great. The role of a striker is a strange one and history speaks of so many curious stories. When a forward doesn't score, he always has difficulties and struggles to find a balance.
"Osvaldo was unlucky, then certain situations were blown out of all proportion. We entered into a vortex that damaged him, but the reality is not the one painted by the media. It's a shame he isn't able to do what everyone expects of him."
