Roma coach Spalletti has no grudge against Chivu

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti bears Cristian Chivu no grudge following his defection to Inter Milan.

"We tried, but it was difficult to hold on to the player," confessed Spalletti. "He wouldn't have had the same motivation and desire here. I consider it the right solution. Nobody acted badly in this affair.

"A player can go where he has a little extra at his disposal, both in terms of money and professional opportunities. He always behaved impeccably with us and helped Roma achieve great results."

On the arrival of Marco Andreolli from Inter, Spalletti was upbeat: "He is an interesting prospect and we are counting on him to have the right desire. He could be one of the two signings we were lacking, as in defence there are seven players now, so we certainly need another."
