Fonseca: The Portuguese leader wakes Roma up

Paulo Fonseca | AS Roma

The efficiency of the Giallorossi changed after the halftime break once again. Fonseca’s words often make the difference.

Although the Lupi had dominated the first half, their efficiency clearly improved during the second 45 minutes. We are not talking about magic but tactical vision and penetrating words that have beneficial effects on the group.

Paulo Fonseca seems to be a prospect of a great trainer and an expert mental coach. When asked if he had screamed in the locker room, the Portuguese stated: “It’s necessary, sometimes. We didn’t play with intensity and aggression. We had space but the team was slow.”

The Portuguese coach also stated that his way to explain tactical approaches to his group can be different at times. “It depends on the situation. Sometimes I get a little angry. Sometimes, I calmly explain things to my players on a collective and individual level…We must always improve at all times of the game,” Fonseca had said to Sky right after Roma-Brescia.
