Mancini Praises Roma: This Group has Great Players

Riccardo De Luca - Update /

The Italian defender believes in the quality of the Roma players. Mancini praises his teammates for their efforts in the Serie A home win against Fiorentina.

He had an exceptional performance against the Viola following Frank Ribery everywhere on the pitch. He limited the plays of the French superstar by being so aggressive and reactive when the former Bayern Munich man got the ball.

Gianluca Mancini is a real added value to Fonseca‘s roster, a group that, as he said, “has great players.”

Everything seems to be easier when playing close to Chris Smalling. The British defender has great international experience and leads the backline with the skill of a commander who has faced many battles.

He [Smalling] is an important and experienced player. Even when he was injured he made himself heard. Having him on the pitch is important to us.

Gianluca Mancini said to Roma TV after Roma v Fiorentina 2-0

Roma played a convincing match against Iachini‘s men. The Italy international believes in the quality of the Giallorossi, a group of players who want to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League.

We had a great game albeit we had been in trouble in the first 10 minutes. We have started this season well and we have known each other for longer. We have faith in what we do. Great players had been added to this group.
