Zeman fired up after Roma backing

Zdenek Zeman held intense talks with Roma over his future on Tuesday and pledged to give the club his best.

It was the second meeting between the club and coach after a string of poor results - that run culminated in Sunday's disappointing 3-3 draw with Bologna - and Zeman's future had become the subject of widespread speculation.

"I wanted to send a signal," the Czech said after leaving club headquarters. "What I did on Saturday was ask for support. I will continue to train at my best."

Sporting director Walter Sabatini offered further explanation, telling Sky Italia there would be no immediate change.

"A doubt had arisen in our minds after his statements on Saturday and we wanted to resolve it," the official said.

"The doubt was whether he wanted to continue with this team. I speak clearly, we all deepened the talks and are totally satisfied. We are ready to fight our battles together."
