Roma coach Zeman refuses to condemn Tachtsidis after dismissal

AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman refused to condemn new signing Panagiotis Tachtsidis for his red card against El Salvador.

Roma last night defeated the El Salvador national team 2-1 in New York.

The game was marred by a late red card that saw Tachtsidis sent off for a reaction foul when headbutted.

"The referee made a bad decision, as it can happen to react badly after being headbutted.

"If I were in his place, I'd have curled up on the floor and cried..." smiled Zeman.
