Coach of Germany Joachim Löw watched match between Roma and Real Madrid (0: 2) from the stands of Olimpico.After the match, he spoke to Roma TV and one of the questions to coach of the current world champion was related to Edin Dzeko, about whom Löw has a very good opinion.“I know him very well from the time when he was playing in the Bundesliga. Edin has great technique, has the instinct for scoring goals and I think that he can be very useful for Roma,” said Löw.These Löw’s words are certainly another proof that the saying “the form is temporary but class is forever,” is true.(Source: E.
