The Argentine defender led the giallorossi to the victory on Saturday. Federico Fazio is Roma‘s indisputable revelation of the last two years.
Roma and its fans can celebrate other three points after Fazio’s goal during the extra time in the match that the Lupi won against Cagliari. The Stadio Olimpico exploded with joy when the Spanish ‘general’ (an epithet that the fans gave to the defender since he landed in Rome) pushed the ball into the net after a cross by Kolarov.
Federico Fazio is the authentic leader of Roma’s defensive line. Although Manolas is a player with great skills and a higher market value, the Argentine is not only a revelation but a force of nature able to lead the defensive strategies.
His 1.95m, tactical wisdom, physicality, and competitive nastiness make the difference on the field. The defender is an impassable wall and a threat to the opposing defensive lines when he goes ahead.
Fazio’s performance against Cagliari was remarkable once more. The Argentine demonstrated his ability to stay calm and produce properly defensive and offensive efforts. His goal scored at the 94th minute was only the icing on the cake, a deserved reward for a great defender.
