The Italian defender is happy and ready to play for the Giallorossi. Mancini is proud of wearing the Roma jersey and impressed with Fonseca’s tactical approach.
Gianluca Mancini spoke to the press for the first time since he joined the Giallorossi. The former Atalanta man knows that the next campaign may be very difficult but also exciting. He was waiting for this important opportunity, a decisive step ahead of his career.
“I had two wonderful years in Bergamo but when my agent called me to talk about Roma, I didn’t have any doubts,” said Mancini during his press conference at Trigoria.
Fonseca wants the Roma defense play with a high line. The Portuguese coach firmly believes that extreme pressing can be beneficial to the team in order to recover the ball rapidly. The players must move the ball quickly. The Italian defender is particularly impressed by Aleksandar Kolarov, “I knew he was a fine player but he has impressed me even more since I’ve been here.”
Mancini likes Fonseca’s offensive approach, “I like the aggressive and aerial side of football as well.” This is just the beginning of his new professional adventure. Roma is a top-level side and the Italy international is ready to show his qualities in the eternal city too.
