The midfielder played a good match against CSKA Moscow. Cristante seems to be more confident at Roma.
Nobody could have expected to see Bryan Cristante suffering the pressure of the Italian capital, but this is precisely what happened.
The former Atalanta man was purchased by Monchi after having played a stellar season with Gasperini‘s side. He was also the best midfielder of the 2017-18 Serie A in terms of performance.
But Cristante passed through a very tough period and nowadays he wants to be an added value to Di Francesco‘s roster.
With Daniele De Rossi out for a knee injury, the new Roma midfielder will have the necessary playing time to refine his skills and tactical attitude in the 4-2-3-1 implemented by the Italian coach this season.
In yesterday’s Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow, something seems to be changed. The Italy international played consistent 90 minutes with a pass accuracy of 79%. He also demonstrated his physicality winning 7 duels against the Russians. He helped the Frenchman (NZonzi) in the interdiction phase and he properly covered the defensive line against the Russian outbursts.
These are clear steps forward for Bryan Cristante, a talented midfielder who could follow Pellegrini‘s astonishing growth soon.
The Italian midfielder could play on Sunday against Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome too.
“A pivotal win giving our soul and with the desire not to stop anymore. Forza Roma,” wrote Cristante on his Instagram profile.View this post on Instagram
