Roma coach Zeman hands De Rossi rare start

AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman handed Daniele de Rossi a surprise start in last night's Coppa Italia win over Atalanta.

But the midfielder failed to turn in a consistent 90 minutes.

"De Rossi started well, then rather lost his way like the rest of the team. It was only to be expected considering he hasn't played for a while," said Zeman.
