Zeman boosted by De Rossi inclusion

Serie A, Last updated:


Under-pressure Zdenek Zeman has been given a boost for Sunday's game with Palermo after Daniele De Rossi was named in his Roma squad.

De Rossi did not train on Saturday but has been included in Zeman's squad for the weekend - a game the Roma coach is under pressure to win following two defeats.
Roma have also received further good news after Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Leandro Castan have both also shaken off knocks and Federico Balzaretti and Rodrigo Taddei are also available.
Zeman, who will turn to Mauro Goicoechea in goal due to Maarten Stekelenburg's injury, knows he is under pressure but is refusing to change his attitude or style of play.
He said: "Why should I change? Barcelona keep the same attitude. If the results don't arrive then it's normal that people won't be happy. As a coach I judge from my perspective.
"Apart from a few inopportune defeats, the team has to get used to playing a certain type of football."
