Roma coach Enrique: Osvaldo action right way to go

AS Roma coach Luis Enrique feels they took the right action against Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.

AS Roma coach Luis Enrique feels they took the right action against Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.

Osvaldo was suspended for 10 days and fined €50,000 for punching teammate Erik Lamela in the locker room after the 2-0 defeat to Udinese last week.

“The easiest thing to do would’ve been to impose a fine and get a bit of money off the player, but that’s just not possible,” said the Coach.

“It would’ve been better for us to have Osvaldo in Florence tomorrow, but he won’t be there. I don’t want events like this to be repeated in future.

“I am not a dictator. Osvaldo is the striker who has played the most this season, but Roma are a group and everyone must understand there are rules that must be respected. Those rules apply to everybody.”
