Roma boss Luciano Spalletti calls team 'naive' for red cards in UCL exit

FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the lack of Italian teams succeeding in the UCL, citing Roma's abysmal match against FC Porto.

Roma manager Luciano Spalletti said he "can't understand why" his side picked up so many "naive" red cards as they crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Thomas Vermaelen was unavailable for the second leg against Porto after being sent off in Portugal, and Daniele De Rossi and Emerson Palmieri also saw red in the return leg as Roma fell 3-0 and 4-1 on aggregate.

Josue has also spent loan spells at Bursapor and Braga while on the books at Porto.

Andre Silva's meteoric rise from roller hockey star to Portugal's top prospect

Porto coach, Nuno Espirito Santo, was left disappointed after his team were held 1-1 draw by Roma.

Finding a quality centre-forward has been a huge problem for Portugal in recent years. Indeed, long gone are the days of Pauleta and Nuno Gomes.

At Euro 2016, the void was so big that Fernando Santos opted to completely change the tactical system, switching from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 with Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani playing centrally. Eder was the only pure striker taken to France, and while the ex-Swansea City man came off the bench to score the sensational winner against hosts France in the final,...
