Sabatini slams Roma coach Fonseca over Dzeko treatment

Former Roma chief Walter Sabatini has slammed coach Paulo Fonseca over his treatment of Edin Dzeko.

Sabatini was Roma's sporting director from 2011 to 2016 and signed Dzeko in the summer of 2015.

"I didn't like a few things that happened at Roma lately," Bologna director Sabatini told TeleRoma56.

“Dzeko is an exceptional professional, he could never create problems. Consequences were too severe for a locker room dispute, Roma had sold him four times in two years and he always decided to stay.

“Fonseca must have done it to boost his authority in the locker room, but everything must go back to normal now, Roma have important targets to pursue.

“I know the locker room, I know that nothing bad could have happened to lead to such consequences, Dzeko suffered a major humiliation."
