The Portuguese is ready to begin the 2019-20 campaign. On Sunday, Roma will face Genoa. The ambition of its leader is indisputable and the group follows Fonseca.
On June 12, 2019, Paulo Fonseca had spoken to the press for the first time as a new Roma coach. The happiness in his eyes had conquered everyone and with his words, he had begun to build his project. Step by step, the Portuguese coach is creating a group with a fighting spirit and an offensive mentality.
When asked about himself, Fonseca had promptly stated: “I find it difficult to talk about myself. I’m a coach with a lot of passion and I want to pass it on to the people who work with me.”
Two months after, his mark on the group already seems to be remarkable. The Giallorossi have a clear identity on the pitch. A very European offensive style and an obsessive hunt to recover the ball.
“I want a courageous team, a group capable of playing with the same approach against big and small teams. In my opinion, it’s not enough to win. I also want to see our ideas implemented on the pitch,” had said Fonseca during his first press conference at Trigoria.
Everything seems to be confirmed. Roma is already demonstrating its identity and the desire to manage the ball in any zone of the pitch. But the group would need three more additions to take off. If the Roma sporting director Petrachi will be able to sign a centre-back, a right-back, and a winger, the Giallorossi could really make the fans proud of their team.
