Spaletti apologises for comments
Roma boss Luciano Spaletti has apologised for comments Roma midfielder David Pizarro and club director Bruno Conti made about Cristiano Ronaldo; the player they both accused of showboating in the first leg in the Champions League First Leg in Rome.
Spalletti said: "Some of the things said by our club after the game were perhaps said in the heat of the moment, because we had the bitter taste of defeat in our mouths.
"Our comments had the bitterness of defeat in them.
"We were disappointed after that game.
"Sometimes we may say things that we normally would not. That is what happened.
" Cristiano Ronaldo is an excellent player. It is something that he has shown through his game.
"He is a very exuberant player and a very fair player. He is a very correct player. Thats what he does on the pitch."
