Roma defender: ‘The only person who can stop me is my manager’
Roma defender Federico Macheda has revealed that he fears that a player-manager pairing with Leonardo Bonucci will be his downfall.
The Rossoneri boss was reportedly unhappy with the pair’s approach when Bonucci joined the Rossonerial in the summer and the pair have since gone on to have a tumultuous relationship with the Italian press.
However, after speaking to the Italian media Machedas has revealed the only person he can blame is his boss, Giovanni Trapattoni.
“I cannot imagine a worse situation than for a player who has become a coach.
He can decide when he wants to come back or not, but if he wants he has to do it on his own, on his terms,” Machedias said.”
We have to keep going on this way, we are not ready for another season and I have not spoken to my boss yet.”
It is a tough situation for a coach and a player.
We cannot expect a change.
I can only think that we can have a happy season with him and Bonucci, who have been working together so well.
“The only thing that can stop us is my boss.
I will do whatever I can to try to help him.”
