The defender passed through difficult moments but Santon’s performances at Roma have been unexpectedly good.
It’s difficult to say that Davide Santon is a player 100% recovered, but his efficiency on the field has been appreciated by the Roma fans.
When the Italian player started his career at Inter, football experts labeled him as a crack, a prodigious defender. A series of injuries and a few bad seasons, instead, have obstacles his career but not compromising it.
In summer 2018, the Roma sporting director Monchi decided to include him in the negotiation that brought Radja Nainggolan to the Nerazzurri. Although the fans of the Lupi have been complaining about his acquisition, Davide Santon performed quite well lately.
In the last 4 Serie A games, the Italian right-back was included in the starting eleven 3 times and collected an overall rating of 7.20.
Santon has played an average of 70 minutes per game showing that his previous injuries are not bother him anymore. Thanks to his 90% of passing accuracy per game and a 64% of duels won, the Italian defender can now hope for a call from Roberto Mancini.
This Davide Santon can be a great value for Roma and for the Italian national team as well.
