8 Goals in Two Campaigns, Can Schick Lead the Roma Offense?

The Czech striker faces the harsh reality of a couple of bad seasons. With Dzeko’s possible departure, Roma’s executives must understand whether to trust him or not. 

Schick’s future seems to be in the hands of the new coach. Although there are still doubts about the possible arrival of Fonseca in the Italian capital, Roma is desperately chasing a new leader on the bench. But the Giallorossi are also thinking about reshaping the roster for next season.

Reportedly, Edin Dzeko could be moving to Inter shortly. Although the Lupi are not willing to lower his price-tag to satisfy the Nerazzurri, the Bosnian star should no longer be the leader of the Roma offense. The strikers’ market can be ruthless though. Crazy economic demands and over-evaluations are common things in recent years.

Roma is ready to reshape its roster and, reportedly, the executives working at Trigoria must find a way to reduce operating costs. In this quest for sustainable management, it might be difficult to pursue a top striker and Patrik Schick may be in charge of the Roma offense next campaign.

Can Schick lead the offensive operations of the Giallorossi?

The answer should be a peremptory NO! Although the Czech striker joined Roma with the reputation of being a predestined to a glittering career, his performances in the last couple of years have been simply disappointing.

Schick entered the pitch 58 times with the Roma jersey playing about 3,000 minutes…an average of about 51 minutes per game. Taking into consideration only the 2017-18 and 2018-19 campaigns, the 23-year-old from Prague scored only 8 goals.

Roma fans are not sure he will be able to drag his teammates to victory replacing Dzeko. His offensive inconsistency has angered passionate Romanistas but his young age would justify an extreme attempt to make him bloom in the eternal city. What should the Lupi hope for? There’s to wait for the instructions of the new coach.
