AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman is looking forward to facing former club Pescara today.

Zeman took Pescara to promotion from Serie B last season, but quit when he received a proposal from the Giallorossi.

"I am happy to return to Pescara, albeit as an 'enemy.' I have more than positive memories here and those go beyond the sporting results. We'll have to see how I am welcomed... I always say Roma have the best fans, but Pescara are close," he said.

"In my view Pescara can still achieve safety. I hope the change of management helps them, just not from tomorrow... I worked with Bergodi as a player. He is a serious and calm individual who had great results in Romania with Cluj."
