Monchi, Totti meet with the team


La Gazzetta dello Sport (Zucchelli): The case of Radja Nainggolan, the draw against Sassuolo, the pitch and social media: today, Roma sporting director, Monchi, returned to Rome after taking a three days rest in Spain as he faced all the problems that Roma are facing after a complicated start to the new year . Today, Monchi spoke to Nainggolan face-to-face after having spoken to him on the phone on 1 January (regarding his New Year’s Eve antics); Monchi also spoke to the rest of the players and did so in a stern tone, as he asked for unity and respect. Beyond that, the content of Monchi’s talk with the team is secret because the club wants to keep certain things in the dressing room. After the confrontation, which was also attended by Francesco Totti, Di Francesco and the team went on the pitch to train. On Saturday, Atalanta arrives to the Olimpico and it will not be an easy match. Roma can not afford to drop more points in the league and the club expects an immediate response.
