Roma coach Spalletti welcomes Baptista capture

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has welcomed the capture of Real Madrid attacker Julio Baptista.

"Baptista has replaced (Amantino) Mancini in attack," said Spalletti.

"Now we are moving towards a squad able to survive the strains of the Serie A and Champions League campaigns, which I see as being particularly long and tortuous this season."
