Roma insist there's no problems with coach Luciano Spalletti.

After yesterday's thrashing by Atalanta, Spalletti reacted to reports of new contract talks by declaring: "You keep asking me if I will extend my contract, but it is already too long.

"I wouldn't be surprised if the club asked to shorten it!"

However, Roma director Maria Sensi moved to assure Spalletti last night.

"It is humourous to think people are saying Spalletti could leave us before his contract ends in 2011. Contracts are there to be respected and the same will happen with our coach."
