AS Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has been defended by coach Aurelio Andreazzoli.
Osvaldo has come in for harsh criticism this season.
Andreazzoli said: â€œOsvaldo is great. The role of a striker is a strange one and history speaks of so many curious stories. When a forward doesnâ€™t score, he always has difficulties and struggles to find a balance.
â€œOsvaldo 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. Itâ€™s a shame he isnâ€™t able to do what everyone expects of him."
