Empoli manager Sarri unsure of how his team will stop Roma


Maurizio Sarri, the manager of Empoli, spoke to Sky Italia and was asked about his team’s upcoming match against the Giallorossi:

“If I had definite answers on how to stop Roma perhaps I’d be coaching Real or Barcelona instead of Empoli. We will try to make a good game, even knowing that these teams are uncontrollable. Who would I like to take away? You can’t change the circumstances. They have their usual names…but Totti’s ability to play vertically can change the match, their strength is on the wing. It’s difficult to counter against them. Our task is to prepare for the game as much as possible and, with a hint of craziness, try and stop Roma. Garcia? From the personality point of view, he’s a great coach because he is able to tame particular players, from the tactical point of view, he’s greatly helped by the strengths of each of the players.”
