Roma coach Luciano Spalletti hails Capocannoniere Edin Dzeko

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti hailed Edin Dzeko after their 5-3 victory over Chievo.

Dzeko consolidated his Capocannoniere status with his 28th Serie A goal of the campaign, a far cry from last term's criticism.

“Dzeko is an extraordinary person who suffered when he couldn't score goals. He came to me and said he couldn't understand certain things, including why he was attacked in such a gratuitous way.

“He started to show his quality over time and proved he is the complete centre-forward. He's good in the air, can hold up the ball, is surprisingly fast – there are few strikers of his size who are that fast, as you think with a run from midfield you'll catch him, but you can't."
