Edin Dzeko hit out at coach Paulo Fonseca and the Roma tactics after a 2-0 Europa League defeat to Sevilla. ‘We had been on no yarn in the game and tried the identical component for 90 minutes.’
The Spherical of 16 became diminished to a one-off knockout match on neutral turf in Duisburg, which became entirely dominated by the Spaniards, who also hit the woodwork twice and had a goal ruled offside.
“Every thing. Every thing. We had been on no yarn in the game, from the first to the closing minute,” Dzeko told Sky Sport Italia when requested what most upset him.
“They ate us up in every space. They had been higher racy, played higher, in higher form. Every thing.”
Roma didn’t tackle a single shot no longer off direction for the length of the match, whereas Sevilla had 10, but Dzeko’s comments level correct away to Fonseca’s tactics.
“They pressed us, we wished to play the ball and it wasn’t which that it is most likely you’ll imagine. They’d maintain a couple of passes and then a long ball over the discontinue.
“Per chance we didn’t sight that it wasn’t which that it is most likely you’ll imagine to play it out from the back and would possibly perhaps just’ve damaged-down me as a goal man for long balls, but we tried that for 90 minutes.
“On the strength of this performance, we now maintain got a the truth is long manner to dawdle. We’ve got to request ourselves some severe questions. I am upset due to we didn’t play at all well and had been on no yarn in the game. That’s a proper let-down.”
