Roma Failed to Convert Good Chances. Fonseca Needs Strikers

Marco Canoniero /

Hellas Verona and Roma collected a point each at the Stadio Bentegodi yesterday. Fonseca needs strikers capable of finalizing the offensive efforts of the Giallorossi.

When the transfer market window is open, there’s always time to improve the team. But what we often forget is that all matches are important and the two points left on the pitch yesterday could be decisive in the future.

The Roma roster will be competitive this season, but it should have already been completed. Paulo Fonseca, instead, had to play the first 90 minutes of the new campaign without a striker due to ongoing negotiations for Arkadiusz Milik.

I think we played to win. The first-half has been very positive. It’s not easy to play here. We have created 4-5 goal-scoring chances.

Edin Dzeko was left on the bench throughout the match. Reportedly, if the deal for Milik will be completed next week, the Bosnia international should join Andrea Pirlo‘s group.

Roma needs strikers capable of converting good chances though. The Polish striker would be a good option for the Lupi but the player should have been already available for the first Serie A clash.

It was a very difficult week for Dzeko. I made this choice mainly to preserve him…I like to play Mkhitaryan in that position as a ‘falso nove’ but we need another striker. We are working to find the best solution.

Paulo Fonseca said to DAZN

Fonseca‘s roster is not complete yet. A work-in-progress sign could be placed a the entrance of the Trigoria training center.
