 coach  believes his side will be tested by while downplaying recent reports linking him with the Swiss national team job.

The Biancocelesti boss has been linked with the position after recent struggles at the club, but the 50-year-old insists his only focus is on doing well with the capital club.

“I am taking the recent rumours in stride and trying to remain calm,” he stated at his pre-match press conference.

“I am trying to transfer this calmness to the squad in order to get this season back on track.

“These are hallway rumours that don’t interest me as there is nothing concrete with the Swiss national team. I am only thinking on the match [against Legia Warsaw].

“Legia will be a tough opponent as they showed in the first match at the Olimpico. They will want to close things out well and show what they can do against an Italian team.

“We must continue on our path in Europe as we want to get first place in the group.

“I will play the players that I feel are the best in this moment and I expect to see a team that helps each other out on the pitch with 11 warriors throughout the match.”
