The new Roma coach wants happy and motivated players in his roster but he firmly believes that the best possible striker for his team is one able to put the ball into the back of the net.
Some coaches love players with great physicality while others believe fast and skilled men can make damages to the enemy lines. Paulo Fonseca didn’t want to reveal the club’s targets.
Several Italian outlets are reporting on Roma‘s interest in Gonzalo Higuain. What Petrachi said a few days ago fueled this talks. Gonzalo Higuain could be an interesting bet if Dzeko will move to Inter. Nobody knows if negotiations for the Argentine star are ongoing, but if the Bosnian player will be traded out, Roma needs to find another top man up front.
In today’s press conference at Trigoria, when asked about the possible new striker for next season, Paulo Fonseca replied, “My ideal striker is one who scores goals.”
A nice and clever way to not reveal the club’s strategies. He still didn’t have the opportunity to speak with Dzeko, “But I know Gianluca has,” said Fonseca. “It’s important to keep players who are happy to be here. Players who are motivated and want to fight for this club. We need players who are 100% committed to the cause.”
The Portuguese man is very positive about the current campaign and the quality of his roster, “I’m confident that with the players we have here and those who will join we can build a great team.”
