The Giallorossi defeated Parma in the Coppa Italia Round of 16. Mancini is happy and unveils that the team trained for a different strategy.
When things do not go as planned something has to be changed. After two burning Serie A defeats, Paulo Fonseca implemented a new tactical idea to surprise Parma and better balance his side. Mission completed!
The Giallorossi kept the possession of the ball throughout the 90 minutes putting Parma in danger attacking from the flanks. The 3-5-1-1 has given extreme strength to the midfield and the necessary solidity to the defense.
When asked about Roma’s disappointing start of 2020, Gianluca Mancini stated: “Defeats must be analyzed and there is regret. A victory doesn’t change things. The coach told us to continue like this and that the goal would come.”
The Italian defender believes Roma need to do something more, though. “We have to go a step further to compete for the top positions. We did well in the past months and we are following an excellent coach,” Mancini said to the official channel of the club Roma TV.
Paulo Fonseca planned a change to properly face Parma in yesterday’s Coppa Italia match. “We tried it [the new tactical strategy] after the match against Juventus. It went very well,” he said to RAI.
A new tactical strategy led Roma to an important win. The Giallorossi may have found the right balance on the pitch.
