The start saw a string of sackings but Luciano Spalletti’s managerial career caught fire in his first spell at Roma, one of the most tactically significant coaching stints of the last 20 years. Defined by the discovery of the 4-6-0 formation that rejuvenated Francesco Totti.
This Golazzo looks back at that team, as well as some of the less successful periods in Spalletti’s time in football. From ostracizing Totti to ostracizing Icardi.
