Roma Striker Edin Dzeko Has Backing Of Luciano Spalletti
Roma coach Luciano Spalletti insists he will maintain faith in Edin Dzeko after the striker came off the bench against Inter.
Dzeko was introduced just before the hour-mark, setting up Radja Nainggolan’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international scuffed a shot into the Belgium international’s path for the leveller six minutes from full-time.
Spalletti said Dzeko had plenty of talent, but he hopes to see more from the 30-year-old – who has seven Serie A goals this season.
“When we push forward and go on the attack anything can happen. Dzeko needs to find a way to put all his weight and all his determination into certain situations,” he said.
“It’s strange what happens to him sometimes but he really does have everything a top striker needs.
“We’ll keep faith in him because he’s a useful player for us to have around.”
