The Serie A match between Roma and Empoli was important for the Giallorossi future but even for that of the Argentine talent Paredes.
There are players able to rapidly demonstrate their talent and those who need a bit more time to master a role in a competitive championship. Paredes’ story at Roma resembles that of many footballers that needed to understand the environment around them before being able to amaze the crowds.
The former Boca Juniors young talent grew up and planted the roots for a great future that I hope will be colored in Red and Yellow. His magic touch is like the brush of a creative painter. His tactical acumen is under development but definitely improved since his arrival in Rome. Spalletti’s trust is there to complete the scenario for a very good midfielder that is working hard to become a champion.
Paredes’ master performance against Empoli
Leandro Paredes is building up his mental strength collecting minutes. His teammates know his qualities and let him manage the pace of the game. The match between Roma and Empoli showed off the remarkable performance of the Roma playmaker. Paredes’ impressive efficiency is highlighted by unquestionable numerical factors:
- 57 out of 61 successful passes;
- 10 ball recoveries;
- 9 successfully long passes;
- 4 tackles;
- 2 chances created.
His ability to change the front of the action was absolutely stunning. More than once, the Argentine midfielder delighted the audience with precise swipes that were destabilizing the tactical planning of the opponents.
Leandro Paredes is a precious gem that is rapidly gaining value. If the guy will be able to speed up the distribution of the ball so he could seriously be compared to a former Roma genius, David Pizarro.
