Roma coach Zeman takes aim at FIGC chief Abete

AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman has taken aim at FIGC president Giancarlo Abete.

Zeman was asked which enemy he'd like to go to dinner with and the journalist wondered if Abete would be the candidate.

"He's not my enemy. He is the enemy of football," replied Zeman. He also returned to the subject of cleaning up the sport.

"There have been some improvements in football, but I fear it's more down to the fear of being discovered than any actual belief in doing the right thing. We need more positive examples.

"Football should be simplicity and that means winning by proving yourselves to be superior on the field and not off it."
