New Roma coach Luis Enrique promises entertaining football

New AS Roma coach Luis Enrique is promising an entertaining style of football.

Enrique gave an extensive interview to Roma Channel that aired last night in Italy.

"I had truly positive sensations on my arrival in Rome and the Trigoria training ground," said the Spaniard.

"I am very happy and excited, all ready to start my new adventure, as you realise when stepping through the doors how big this club and its fanbase really is.

"I had thought of taking a rest after Barcelona B and knew about a few offers, but Roma's call was a surprise. They chose a new path, a young Coach, and I am happy to be a part of this project. I thank the directors, as it's not easy to put your faith in an inexperienced tactician.

"My intention is to bring to Italy what I have learned at Barcelona in these years: that is attacking football with a good team movement. We will try to win from the very first minute. Coaches bring their personality to a side. I want the team to have that attacking impetus as well as hard work.

"My hope is that Roma fans can be proud of the team and believe we deserve their faith in us."
