Roma coach Spalletti plays down Panucci, Aquilani bust-up

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has played down reports of a furious training ground bust-up between Christian Panucci and Alberto Aquilani on Sunday.

"In three years here there have been few problems because the lads are always well behaved," the Tuscan Coach stated.

"This time I don't think that it is necessary to talk about it as a drama. The players were just disappointed after the defeat against Juventus and were a bit tense.

"It can happen that a few words and a gesture can be taken in a certain way, but things were contained and the moment has passed."
