Luciano Spalletti quotes

Sep 24 2017

After Bologna, we played a training match with some of those who have played less. Joao Mario wanted to be part of it the day after because he wasn't happy with what he gave.feedback

Sep 24 2017

Until the final day that I'm here, I will believe in them and I won't change how I think because of one match or a statistic.feedback

Sep 24 2017

The players were the first to be unhappy with the last result and there's an automatic reaction and desire to give more. These are the players we have for this season, we don't know what will happen after but I have faith in these players.feedback

Sep 19 2017

They played well and we did just as well to win the match, maybe with some individual performances like Handanovic's.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Icardi inside the penalty area is impossible to stop, he is lethal. I would like him to join in more with the team play, but that takes nothing away from his finishing.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Handanovic went beyond his limits. He was excellent.feedback

Sep 19 2017

There is room for improvement. He has received a lot of praise but the team have also played their part too.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Icardi and Perisic can do a lot for the team and they are doing well but like we need them, they need the team, so together we all need to work hard so we can unleash our full potential. We need to work as a group. They played well and we did just as well to win the match, maybe with some individual performances like Handanovic's.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Individuals are important. All of the great teams know how valuable individual players are but if they can't make the difference, only collective play allows you to win matches.feedback

Sep 15 2017

He's at the level of Isco [whose new Real Madrid contract has a €700m release clause] and all the top players.feedback

Sep 09 2017

We know that we need to close a certain gap with the top four teams and we want to do so by looking to win every single match. A team such as Inter can't ever settle and we're only happy if we win matches.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Champions League

We have to create something that allows us to move forwards next year, to create the criteria with which we can see who we are as a team. It's okay with me if you say that we need to fight for Champions League qualification and we'll have to check-in for that in games such as tomorrow's if we're to fly around Europe.feedback

Sep 09 2017

We all hold him in high esteem and see him as a great player and a great person. I see a footballer who can show the way, he's an incredible example and he has to show it on the pitch because we all expect a lot from him.feedback

Sep 09 2017

You don't build the base of a team in a day. We've worked every day from the first time we met to become a strong team. Apart from the results, I'm happy with the attitude that I've seen up to this point. Results obviously affect the judgements made but what matters most is the road that you want to follow.feedback

Sep 09 2017

We know he's willing to take this responsibility, you can see that in how he prepares.feedback

Aug 27 2017

The Totti fans jeered me, but I received many positive messages from the Roma fans.feedback

Aug 27 2017

They jeered me because they think I am the reason Totti retired. But I am not [at Roma] now and he could have continued. Our paths have not crossed. If they had, I would have offered all my friendship. Inter are a good team but we need to work.feedback

Aug 27 2017

Inter are a good team but we need to work.feedback

Aug 26 2017

In the first half, we were not quick enough moving the ball, so Roma got back into their shape and kept winning back possession.feedback

Aug 19 2017

Perisic? We've spoken with Ivan. Both myself and the club. There's no sense of regret after those meetings. He's someone who almost always stays behind after training for personal work. Ivan is one of the most professional payers and his behaviour on the pitch has only showed that he has feelings for the team. The new arrivals are also showing that they've got an Inter heart so I'm happy with that.feedback

Aug 19 2017

We go forward calmly, but I don't know what could happen tomorrow. As far as I can tell, Chelsea could try to do something. You are the ones who always anticipate these situations, so I should ask you. You are very good at writing names in the papers and getting people swept up in it. I had fallen for it too this time, when you talked about [Arturo] Vidal and [Alexis] Sanchez, I was there staring at the gate to see if they would walk in. Then I pinched myself.feedback

Aug 19 2017

The truth is, I am happy with what I've got, four or five players have left and as many came in. Naturally, if you can get world-class players, it provides an advantage because they are immediately ready to give results, but when you have great players who are just about to become world-class, it depends on communication and how ready they are. I'm ready like the players for this start of the season. I'm very excited.feedback

Aug 19 2017

Mauro is fine, he perhaps hasn't had enough training and playing time but we're relaxed. If he can't maintain his condition for 95 minutes, we'll evaluate things. There are certainly other players who can do so and there's no need to be worried at being without him.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Kondogbia is strong and has been paid as a strong player, so if there aren't the right conditions for him to go, then he's staying here. We'll evaluate whether to sign someone else in the middle, but I won't let a quality player leave without a quality replacement.feedback

Aug 13 2017

In my view, Kondogbia was given some bad advice, as this sort of attitude is just not part of his personality.feedback

Aug 12 2017

He wants to go to Valencia on loan and save a bit on his wages, but he wants it too easy… When there is something you don't agree on, you find a middle ground. Considering the money spent on him, it's difficult.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Manchester United

There has been no more significant contact in the last few weeks. As far as I'm concerned there's nothing more to say.feedback

Jul 29 2017

The last year Perisic played with Inter he was important to the team. But with Perisic we did not win anything. It is important the team wins, not one individual.feedback

Jul 28 2017

Milan have certainly spent a lot. I think teams like Juventus, Roma and Napoli have a better chance as they haven't had many changes to their squad.feedback

Jul 28 2017

Until now, there hasn't been any important contact. There was something you already know about at the beginning of the window. There was no follow-up and so, for me, the topic is over. I said in the beginning that the team had qualities that had to be shown. That's what we have been working on in the last couple of days.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Our intention is to keep him if possible.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I can't say for sure whether we can keep him or not. I've known him for a long time. He's a world-class player. Whether he plays well or not [in pre-season], that will not change my mind.feedback

Jul 24 2017

We have made a lot of progress over the last couple of matches and it is a consensus by all. But, of course, it will be even better if we can have further improvements. I'm convinced that we will have a great game [against Lyon] tomorrow. It is really difficult to play three matches in a week and the hot weather may have a negative effect on our performance but we will do our utmost to make adjustments and play a quality game.feedback

Jul 23 2017

He is a fantastic player and if his future is totally up to me, I will definitely keep him. However, if an offer comes and the club are satisfied with the money, which will be used to invest in and strengthen the team, he could leave.feedback

Jul 20 2017

He'll play, and given that he didn't play the friendly matches in Brunico he'll play more than the others. Up until now it hasn't been an easy market, but I'm happy with the commitment of the directors. We don't have to do things quickly, because we have a quality squad. Is it a conspiracy? You all know what we want, but the offer has not yet arrived. Schick is a talent, but not an Inter player. He's still at Sampdoria. I don't think we will talk with his agents.feedback

Jul 17 2017

Perisic? You [journalists] know everything, it's all out in the open.feedback

Jul 15 2017 - China

If nothing changes, then Perisic will come to China [on Inter's pre-season tour]. He had an abscess in his tooth and it was clearly visible even to the naked eye, so he preferred to go to his personal medic who has been seeing him for a long time.feedback

Jul 15 2017

That is something the directors are working on.feedback

Jul 11 2017

I will speak to everyone and, of course, for those who are distracted there will be different words. I will listen to him [Perisic]. I'm counting on him but we'll have to understand his intentions. It would not be nice to hear him say words like 'I want to leave'. We'll see.feedback

Jul 10 2017

There'll be fewer chances for those players who are distracted, and better opportunities for those who want to stick with Inter. Perisic is an important player for us, we're counting on him. Let's see what he has to say, I don't expect him to say that he wants to leave, that would be bad. We'll see what his intentions are.feedback

Jul 09 2017

In any case, I will say this: we are Inter and we can choose to make different decisions to the ideas of the players. I hope to have him in the side, I am counting on it and I am positive in that sense.feedback

Jul 09 2017

We're talking about a great guy as well as a wonderful player. He's very different to how people talk about him, he just has this remarkable sporting determination.feedback

Jun 24 2017

I will keep hammering this concept into them. If they don't understand what it means to wear the Inter shirt, then we will get nowhere.feedback

Jun 24 2017

Those who play here must feel they are Inter, not just a player who is at Inter. Otherwise there is no point talking about a sense of belonging.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Champions League

We would need another nine or 10 victories to bridge the gap and they are strengthening their own squads too.feedback

Jun 24 2017

So before any of that, let me look my players in the eye and see how they react to my suggestions.feedback

Jun 22 2017

He has picked up fantastic, brilliant habits. He was running to recover a lost ball in the 75th minute [while 4-0 up against Palermo]. This is the right path to follow. If every player in our squad applied the same level, we'll get so much satisfaction from games. These are the right habits.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Icard is captain. He'll need to show the right kind of behaviour as well as footballing ability.feedback

Jun 14 2017

I'll gain a bit of experience here but, as long as the pitch measurements don't change, 4-2-3-1 is a complete formation to bring good performances out of the team, allowing those attacking qualities that decide results to come out.feedback

Jun 14 2017

It must be the team that works. I want all the players who are able to donate something to their team-mates with their quality.feedback

Jun 14 2017

In not being able to put the two things together, I did not do my job well. These two things must go hand in hand.feedback

Jun 14 2017

They must all be united. I even now wish this to Roma.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Inter contacted me when I was about to finish the championship. [Roma president James] Pallotta had already been warned by me that I would be gone. After the farewell to Roma, this was the best thing that could happen to me. I say this without wanting anyone to take offence.feedback

Jun 14 2017

In Rome, I had become the one that divided rather than united. There was this problem on the management of Totti.feedback

Jun 14 2017

I came to see this contrast – the love for the most important player prevailed on the support and affection that we had to have for the team.feedback

Jun 14 2017

I was in trouble because I heard rumours from the fans. I heard them on the streets, in bars, at traffic lights. Many were in favour but there was a line of demarcation.feedback

Jun 10 2017

We shouldn't convince anyone to stay at Inter. I am already convincing others to join Inter and that is the most we can aspire to do.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - China

Everything is in place. We've shaken hands; we're old fashioned and we do things with a handshake.feedback

May 31 2017

A message for Di Francesco? But has Di Francesco been announced? Is this a trap?feedback

May 31 2017

As for myself, I am free to talk to who I want. I'll start tomorrow and if anyone wants to call me, then I'll listen to them.feedback

May 31 2017

I hope one of Di Francesco or Montella is the next Roma coach, because they know the environment and they have the human qualities you need, as well as the coaching skills.feedback

May 27 2017

Of course, [the media] will take all this and make it look as if I'm angry with Totti. I use the principle of [the media] and me, but it is turned into 'Totti and me'. The memory that ties me to Francesco the most is of the quality of this player and the character he shows when stepping onto the field. Pace, technique and physicality are all important for a player, but character is fundamental.feedback

May 27 2017

He was always put at the forefront of any performance, perhaps annulling the quality of another player. For a club, coach and fans, it should be Roma who win. Totti has won a great deal, but he alone is not enough and he knows that. We're here again saying that Roma haven't won silverware.feedback

May 27 2017

A coach has to deal with 20 players - a whole dressing room - not just one. There was a time when Totti missed six penalties in a row. I went to other players and asked if they wanted to take the kick, but they all said they wouldn't when Francesco was there. The memory that ties me to Francesco the most is of the quality of this player and the character he shows when stepping onto the field. Pace, technique and physicality are all important for a player, but character is fundamental.feedback

May 27 2017

Penalties make a big difference in the long run to the points. If you miss 100 and still insist on taking them, that's not fair to the group. The memory that ties me to Francesco the most is of the quality of this player and the character he shows when stepping onto the field. Pace, technique and physicality are all important for a player, but character is fundamental.feedback

May 26 2017

All this really disappoints me. If I could go back, I would never have returned to Roma.feedback

May 26 2017

My son is having some problems at the moment, as fellow students of his are making fun of him at school. And now my two sons don't want to leave the house because they are afraid.feedback

May 22 2017

There's no other thought than Roma-Genoa now, and I don't know if it really will be Totti's farewell. He must say what he plans to do and I don't know what he's thinking. Certainly, during the game, he'll have the opportunity to help his team-mates win for a Champions League [group-stage] spot.feedback

May 09 2017

We always end up talking about the same thing. This team deserves praise, but instead we are always talking about this and if I play him for just five minutes, I'm disrespecting a legend, then if I don't introduce him, that's wrong too.feedback

May 08 2017

If I could go back, I would never have come to manage Roma. Here, people always talk about the same things.feedback

May 06 2017

If we speak about the Totti situation, Monchi has only reported on the situation he has found. Francesco is going through the most important moment of his career, he wants to wait the end of the season and he wants to keep quiet in order to stress the importance of the final streak of games. Whereas you [the media] care more about his fate than the others, but in order to achieve results, we should take everyone into consideration. It's the president who is managing Totti's career ending and it seems to me that he has already done this.feedback

May 06 2017

Try asking... the seven or eight teams behind us whether finishing third is a failure. Juventus have made it clear that nobody can get near first place... we are fighting it out with Napoli, who many say are one of the strongest sides in Europe. They had this position last season, they are the reigning holders of second place. If we are threatening their spot, it means we have done well. We are not afraid to come up against Milan or Juventus, so that is what makes the difference. We reached this point with our own hard work.feedback

May 06 2017

If we finish second, it'll be like winning the Scudetto. Finishing third means we've done a great job. We continue working to give Roma and its fans an international visibility. Third place is a noble position.feedback

May 06 2017

[James] Pallotta went to get the best, this makes his intentions clear. What he [Monchi] said about us is pleasing, a clean vision that comes from the outside, not sullied by what people say around us. He looked around and said: 'It seems to me that, all told, Roma are doing a good job. Clearly there are things we try to improve, but he expressed a positive opinion and that is how they see us from the outside. I am glad to work with Monchi, he's the best director out there.feedback

Apr 30 2017

If you look at the game today, we were weaker in defence. After a result like this, you have to accept all the criticism. We lost sharpness, made bad decisions, were unlucky on the incidents, as both the first and second goal were deflected shots from the edge of the box. We created six or seven chances that we failed to convert. We should've kept more possession, as we did in the opening 10 minutes, and that would've worn Lazio down, making it easier for us to break them down. Instead, by taking the lead, Lazio could simply counter.feedback

Apr 30 2017

Ugly incidents led to an ugly Roma. We started off playing the way we thought that we had to play and created chances, but Lazio scored with their first attempt. Of course it was a psychological blow, you make mistakes and it becomes a wide open game. We were no longer the team we know that we are. I opted to go with three at the back after a while, as Lazio were dangerous on the counter and lacked sharpness. Then Lazio scored again with a deflection, so we were unlucky.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I know that in 18 months we have amassed many more points compared to other sides, but in football you can only be happy if you win. A coach must feel that and speak clearly to the fans. In order to challenge Juventus, you need work and planning. They have the advantage, there's no two ways about it, but I think over these 18 months the gap between us has diminished. We have eight games left to play and they could prove decisive in shaping the future of this club and the future of this team.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Donadoni is a highly professional, experienced coach and he's always been able to get his teams playing good football. Bologna can be hard to read because they have pace and power up front and skilful players.feedback

Apr 08 2017

They've also won two of their last three games and they only lost at Fiorentina in the final minutes. They're in a comfortable league position so they're under no pressure to get a result. It's going to be a very tricky game and we'll need to be at our absolute best if we want to win it.feedback

Apr 04 2017

This is not the time to talk about it - my future is trying to get us the best position possible.feedback

Apr 04 2017

We'll see if this affects the rest of the season. We are sorry for the defeat, but we cannot change the past and we must be careful to prepare for the future.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Last year they fired a coach and had to keep paying three years of his contract. I'm doing them a favour!feedback

Mar 15 2017

Qualification is there for us to reach out and grasp. We cannot be afraid. I'm absolutely convinced that our players will want to be the stars of the evening. My lads are very mature and they'll make the correct analysis and act accordingly. We'll need something extra. We had a bad result, but we have to see it in the right light - if we'd lost 1-0 then we'd still need to score two goals, so that's what the path is.feedback

Mar 09 2017

We had opportunities to decide the tie already. But we did not take our chances. We were in control, but we were not ruthless enough and eventually suffered toward the end. We could have scored more than two goals, but failed to do so. It will now be a tough task in the return.feedback

Mar 09 2017

We did not put in a bad performance, but I feel we could have done more. This is a tricky result and makes things difficult.feedback

Mar 09 2017

But we can still reach the next round. We have to discuss what happened and make some changes. What has happened is in the past now.feedback

Mar 09 2017

For a variety of reasons, winning is imperative here. We don't have the time to think of a gradual progression, everything is accelerated, lived at full-speed. So it's very simple: if I don't win something, it means I haven't done any better than my predecessors and, as a result, I'll have to go home. What is he like? To still have Totti after all these years offers a notable advantage. When he comes onto the pitch, he creates a special atmosphere right away.feedback

Mar 04 2017

We must be realistic. It was difficult before, now it's almost impossible. They were much better in the first half at moving the ball quickly, whereas we hardly ever managed to raise the tempo or get into the right positions. They also made us really suffer to win back the ball. You need the sharpness to make those two or three passes in a row to open up spaces and Napoli did it far better. We improved in the second half and it was a whole other game, although we were rather unlucky with the woodwork.feedback

Mar 04 2017

I don't think it's right to talk about fatigue, as that makes the situation worse. You can talk about it, but don't involve me, especially as towards the end the team had a completely different attitude, so they can't have been tired. We could not have played like that in the final minutes if we were fatigued. On Wednesday we didn't play that well, but we weren't dominated by Lazio at all. We knew how they'd play and did not adjust accordingly.feedback

Mar 04 2017

When we made it more one-against-one in the second half, we saw a team with a more spirit and fluidity. I decided to give more space to Stephan El Shaarawy and Diego Perotti, but the whole team didn't step up at the right times, so they weren't given the chance to make more of an impact.feedback

Mar 04 2017

If you find the right through ball, it can make all the difference. Unfortunately, we tended to play it badly and were not calm, courageous or precise enough.feedback

Mar 03 2017

I expect us to make the right decisions when the time comes for us to dig in and I expect the team to defend in an orderly fashion and pick the right time to push on.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Of course, we have lots of matches at the moment and that uses up a lot of energy, but we are not tired - we are ready. We have just as good a chance in Saturday's game as Napoli do, even if they have had an extra day of rest. We do not want sympathy from anyone, that is not what we are about. We play on a level playing field against a strong side who will come at us with the same intentions. Our players have proved they are mature and Saturday we will need to show every bit of the maturity we have built up since we started working together last season.feedback

Mar 06 2012

I don't want to get into who is favourite, we will just think about getting in there and playing 90 minutes with all our quality and all we got because this is the most important match in Zenit's history.feedback
