The Portuguese coach held a press conference ahead of the next Serie A match Bologna-Roma. Fonseca knows it will be a complicated challenge.
Roma on the road to Bologna for the fourth Serie A match of the 2019-20 season. Although the Giallorossi have played a very good Europa League match against the Turkish side, Bologna represents a tough obstacle at this time.
The Rossoblue are a compact side with good players, a group that already collected 7 points. This is going to be Roma‘s first away match since the beginning of the season.
“It is an excellent test to measure our qualities. We will face a strong team that is ahead of us in the standings. They are undefeated,” said Paulo Fonseca to the press today. “It is a very motivated team, with very good players. It’s also a group that reflects the mentality of its coach.”
European matches are different from those of the Italian league. The Portuguese coach unveiled that two proper midfielders will shield Roma’s backline tomorrow. “The Europa League match had different characteristics and that’s why I chose a physical player like Diawara. In light of the aspects of the Italian league, I prefer to use two proper midfielders. Cristante and Veretout will play tomorrow.”
