Radja Nainggolan Also Must Strong in Surviving
Roma coach, Eusebio Di Francesco, admitted glad to see the appearance of midfielder Radja Nainggolan. But Di Francesco also asked the 29-year-old to improve his survival skills.
This is disclosed Di Francesco after Rome surrender 1-2 of Sevilla in the last game preseason at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Thursday (10/08/2017). Created Edin Dzeko’s goal in the 90th minute + 1, after they left behind two goals Sergio Escudero (73 ‘) and Nolito (90’).
Although Roma lost, Di Francesco admitted happy with the performance of his team, especially Nainggolan. But Di Francesco is still not satisfied with the appearance of Belgian Belgian players in terms of helping the defense.
“I really love the desire to sacrifice from Nainggolan and his performance is getting better as the game progresses and he has rediscovered the desire to survive,” Di Francesco said.
“Radja is a midfielder and he should be able to work equally well in terms of attacking and defending, so I will try to make sure he can always play full,” he said.
Defeat of Sevilla this makes Rome close preparations ahead of the 2017-2018 season rolling with bad results. The Giallorossi suffered three defeats in the last four games.
Aside from Sevilla, Roma are also subdued from Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain through a penalty shootout in the International Champions Cup 2017.
