AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman denies describing FIGC president Giancarlo Abete as an "enemy of football" last week.

Zeman is rarely far away from controversy and stirred up trouble this week when he suggested FIGC President Abete was an "enemy of football."

"I didn't think about it the way the headlines made it look. It was not personal, as I merely said he represented the system and it is the system that has to be improved," said Zeman.
