Zeman hits out at Italian football

25 August 2012 18:44

Roma coach Zdenek Zeman has criticised Italian football, claiming the players in Serie A 'do not know how to win anymore'.

The 65-year-old was in a bullish mood when describing the country's competitiveness, but was more buoyant when asked about his side's chances in the coming season.

"In Italy, you know, they don't know how to lose," he told La Repubblica. "They don't even know how to win anymore.

"I've been here for more than 40 years. I feel Italian. We have lost credibility (as a nation). Isn't football a game? We should play it then.

"In order to be on par with the big clubs, (Roma) must prove something on the pitch.

"I hope the team can have a positive campaign and compete with everyone.

"Usually they say the favourites are those who did well last year – Juventus, Milan, Inter, Lazio and Udinese.

"However, this term we're starting from scratch and I think everyone has a chance to prove themselves.

"I feel at home here and I am starting from scratch on a personal level too. I left Roma 13 years ago and now I want to do something new for the fans and players."
