- ASRoma.it published a note signed Luciano Spalletti this evening, in which he firmly denies newspaper reports that he has stated certain demands to be met for him to stay in Rome next season.

Says the communique, among other things: "every word is fantasy and offensive for the professionalism and the image, not only of the coach, but above all for the entire management".

Not entirely sure how it's more offensive for the management than Spalletti to suggest he made those demands, but there it is. And here is the link.

- In that city which Roma runs, Milano, they're selling shirts with De Rossi's name and number on the back. Perfect conclusion to a week in which the city had surpassed one new low after another.
