In order to play many competitions, it’s necessary to implement a careful and effective turnover. Paulo Fonseca is doing that in the Europa League matches.
The Portuguese coach is giving playing-time to all players of his roster and the overall results on the international stage are positive. Roma is currently leading Group A with 7 points.
When you can count on experienced players with superior quality everything seems to be easier. The Armenian star scored the opener with a peremptory header right at the beginning of the match and dragged his teammates to get a comfortable win against the Romanian side.

Talking to Roma TV at the end of the match, Mkhitaryan expressed his happiness with the performance of the group. But he also believes that Roma has to improve even more to get to the next level.
We have analyzed our opponents and played well since the start. My early goal helped but we would have done well anyway even without that.
We are working well and doing everything not to suffer goals. But the most important thing is to win…
What we are doing now is not enough, though. We have to think that we can improve and get to the next level.Henrikh Mkhitaryan said to Roma TV after Roma v Cluj 5-0
