AS Roma defender Nicolas Burdisso is happy to play for coach Zdenek Zeman.

Burdisso admits he was rather worried when preparing to work with Zeman for the first time.

“He had been described to me as a Coach who doesn’t care what the defenders do, but he is very attentive and balanced. In just a few words he lets the players know what he wants. I like his style and he can help the young players to grow.

“Juventus are the strongest team and we must try to tear the Scudetto away from them. It seems to me that the Milanese clubs have lost something, while Napoli are also different without Ezequiel Lavezzi.

“Having said that, we must focus only on ourselves with the belief we’ll have a great season. I know how wonderful it would be to win a Scudetto with Roma. I am working towards that.”
