Spalletti: Roma must keep Chivu

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti admits he's desperate to see Cristian Chivu secured to a new contract.

"We cannot allow a player to control the club," he noted. "No player is irreplaceable, as the only eternal figure here is President Franco Sensi.

"I tried to speak with Chivu, but his busy schedule meant he was unable to get back to me. I will talk it over with him soon to know what his thoughts are.

"Cristian has been and remains an important figure for Roma, a great player we do not want to lose. But one cannot impose a decision on others. He has the right to choose what to do."
