Eusebio on Torino and Monchi’s transfer dealings

Eusebio Di Francesco has reiterated his faith in the transfer dealings of sporting director Ramon Monchi.

Ahead of the club’s game with Torino, Eusebio went on to give an insight into the fitness of his players for the game.

“Both Dzeko and Schick are in excellent condition,” the Coach said at a Press conference via Football Italia.

“I’ll make a decision tomorrow, keeping Edin’s recovery in mind. I’m happy to have two important options in front of me, especially Patrik’s recent growth.

“Who will recover in time for tomorrow? Manolas almost certainly because he’s trained with us for the last three days, so if he doesn’t have any problems [before Saturday] then he’ll be available.

“Florenzi isn’t at his best because of a bad cold, so I have to evaluate whether to call him up or not.

Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal

Chris Smalling can "definitely see a longer-term future" for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.

“Karsdorp will play for his place with Santon [at right-back], then there are Mirante, Perotti, De Rossi and Juan Jesus who aren’t available.

“Pastore? He’s acquiring good physical condition. Now he must find consistency in what he does, but Zaniolo will start as our No 10.

“I can say we’ve improved our last three games, but we’ve often come back from bad runs and we hope we don’t have to again.

“Tomorrow we have the obligation and need to win, and we’ll show intent right away because against certain teams with certain mechanisms, everything becomes more difficult.

“I have faith in Monchi, who is looking for opportunities [to bring in players]. I told him that if we have to do something for the sake of it, it’s better to do nothing at all.

“If there’s an opportunity to improve our squad, then yes, otherwise we’ll stay as we are. Belotti? I won’t talk about players who don’t belong here.”
