Roma boss Luciano Spalletti happy to take the points

Roma boss Luciano Spalletti was happy to overcome Pescara 3-2 on Sunday.

Edin Dzeko struck twice to edge the five goal result.

“It wasn't a great performance, but we are in a moment of transformation. We're not happy to be beautiful anymore, we want to be winners," the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

Pescara could play without pressure, as they had nothing to lose in a fixture like this and that freedom really helped them to move the ball about well.

“We also wasted several chances, whereas Pescara took the two opportunities we granted them and almost got a third too."

Spalletti added: “Being beautiful is great, but in football you need to win. There's no record of how well we played, just how many points we got."
