Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has assumed "responsibility" for the injury that has sidelined Daniele de Rossi but gave fans some cheer by announcing the imminent return of Kevin Strootman and Francesco Totti.Italy midfielder De Rossi has been sidelined for a month after suffering a calf injury in the dying stages of Roma's 2-0 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid in midweek.It is the fifth time De Rossi has injured the same calf in the last year and a half and means he will miss the return at the Santiago Bernabeu in three weeks as well as four or five Serie A games.Spalletti, who began his second spell at the Serie A club last month after replacing sacked Rudi Garcia, said it is partly his fault.
