Gonalons unveils his mastery

Roma‘s French midfielder Maxime Gonalons debuted in the Serie A away match against Benevento.

He needed around ten minutes to enter the game but then Maxime Gonalons demonstrated his great skills on the field. The Frenchman was relegated to the bench for several weeks but when Eusebio Di Francesco put him in charge of the control room, he managed it properly.

His match against Benevento is a made of tactical mastery, strategic management, and verticalization skills. Maxime Gonalons is a great playmaker for the giallorossi.

He has retained 8.4% of the ball possession touching 105 balls in front of Roma’s defensive line. 79% of his passes were perfectly accurate and one of them was a great verticalization for Bruno Peres who forced Lucioni to score an own goal.

Three tackles and five successful dribbling further enhanced Gonalons’ performance.

Although the Frenchman recently stated that he hopes to return to his beloved Lyon in the future, Eusebio Di Francesco knows that Gonalons could be a positive addition to his team.

Daniele De Rossi is no spring chicken anymore and albeit his indubitable skills as a playmaker and faith for the Lupi, the gladiator from Ostia needs rest sometimes. The former Lyon captain is the perfect piece for Di Francesco’s tactical scheme.
