Kolarov: Roma’s Best Serie A Player

The Serbian fullback has been Monchi’s most productive purchase in the current Serie A campaign.

When the Roma sporting director put his tentacles on Aleksandar Kolarov no one could have imagined that the Serbian would have become Roma’s most efficient player of the season.

The captain of the Serbian national team joined the giallorossi on July 22, 2017. Monchi poured €5 million into Manchester City‘s coffers signing a very experienced left-back able to play as a left-midfield and centre-back as well.

The 32-year-old confirmed his great personality. Nowadays, Kolarov is a respected leader of the Lupi and Roma‘s best Serie A player.

Stats (by WhoScored.com) reveal his efficiency since the beginning of the 2017-18 season.
He made 27 appearances for a total of 2,399 minutes. The Serbian scored 2 goals and made 6 assists. Thanks to his physicality, he successfully wins aerial duels (1.5 per game). His vision and ability to make precise passages (82.1%) are other relevant factors to highlight. The Serbia international was selected MVP of the match 5 times. His overall rating in the 2017-18 Serie A is 7.63. Kolarov is in the third position of this ranking behind Juventus‘ Paulo Dybala (7.79) and Lazio‘s Luis Alberto (7.64).
