Spalletti hits out at media

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti says he will stop talking to the media if they continue to quiz him about his future with the club.
Roma wrapped up a 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Sunday, but rather than talk about events on the pitch, Spalletti had to deal with questions over whether he will sign a new deal with the Giallorossi.
That clearly angered Spalletti, who has threatened to stop attending the post-match press conferences if it continues. Spalletti is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to pen a new one, and the media are keen to know why.
“Many people speak from the outside, without knowing what is really going on,” Spalletti said after the victory at the Stadio Olimpico.
“The newspapers write negative things about Roma that I simply don’t recognise. In reality Roma is harmonious, even if people want to be able to say there is an unpleasant atmosphere here.
“From now on I only want to talk about football, and I will not answer questions about other things. It is offensive and I will not answer anymore. If it makes it easier, I will stop going to press conferences."
