The Bosnian star didn’t play his best match on Sunday but he managed to score the winner against Lecce. Dzeko is the perfect striker for Fonseca’s tactical system.
Although he was reportedly very close to leaving the club of Trigoria last summer, Petrachi‘s greatest acquisition was Dzeko. The Bosnia international is Roma‘s leading force. Dzeko seems to be the perfect striker for Fonseca‘s football system.
In Sunday’s Serie A away match against Lecce, Dzeko scored the winner with a peremptory header in the 56th minute. Mkhitaryan‘s marvelous cross was, once more, collected and capitalized by the Bosnian. His ability to drop down and help the midfielders is remarkable. Dzeko is also great when he triggers Roma’s wingers with precise passes.
He needs a little rest after playing several matches since the beginning of the season.
