De Rossi, Roma’s Human Shield

The captain of the giallorossi protected Roma’s defensive line demonstrating his innate tactical wisdom.

Today’s match between Napoli and Roma demonstrated the importance of a player who has already celebrated his 34th birthday but is tactically irreplaceable. Daniele De Rossi is not only the captain of the Lupi but a wolf himself. A midfielder able to protect the centre-backs and set the pace of the game.

Zelinski and Jorginho‘s offensive raids have often been countered by the Italian playmaker. He had the ability to erect a wall benefiting Manolas and Fazio who played with no worries and with steely determination.
De Rossi is Roma’s human shield!
