Roma coach Spalletti: Vucinic won't make way for Totti

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti is confident Mirko Vucinic can play in the same team as Francesco Totti.

Vucinic, in the absence of Totti, scored again for Roma in last night's 3-2 derby victory over Lazio and Spalletti insists the young forward won't have to make way once his captain is fit again.

"Vucinic and Totti can quite happily co-exist, as they already have done in the past," assured Spalletti.

"Of course Vucinic may have to be a little more on the wing, but that is not a problem as strikers do not tend to just stand there in front of the goal.

"I watched Lazio's forwards tonight and they started out very deep, so there's nothing to say that Totti has to go very far back to play with Vucinic. They can be in attack together, as long as when one goes forward, the other steps back into that space."
