Roma coach Luciano Spalletti: We should be happy with this season

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti remains coy over his future after victory over Chievo.

Off contract in June, Spalletti oversaw a stunning 5-3 win on Saturday.

He said, “Clearly if we take comments from 10 weeks ago and put it here, that doesn't fit. What I said yesterday? That was before today's game…

“A goal changes everything, the team becomes incredible, and then turns into flops, or so people would tell you. The players lost some terrible matches, we took the situation in hand and fought to recreate our sporting happiness, to recreate the opportunity to get here.

“Look at the teams elsewhere who don't get to finish second in their leagues? Manchester United, Manchester City, etc. You can't say that finishing third becomes a failure."
