The Turkish talent is now in charge of the right offensive flank again. With Zaniolo out for a long time, Under must make a difference and score goals.
This moment could be considered a new beginning for Cengiz Under. The Giallorossi need his quality on the right offensive flank and his ability to score goals.
Nicolò Zaniolo picked up a serious knee injury and underwent surgery today in the Italian capital. The Italian prodigy was Fonseca‘s favorite player on that side, but the Portuguese coach will likely start Under from now on.
The Turkey international has the talent to shine again after a period with many ups and downs. Cengiz Under knows how to score goals. In the 2017-18 campaign, the 22-year-old from Balikesir made 32 appearances scoring 8 goals and 2 assists.
The following year he confirmed his superior quality. In the 2018-19 season, he scored 6 goals and 3 assist in 33 appearances.
The situation has changed in the current season, though. On September 15, 2019, Cengiz Under picked up an injury and missed several matches. In this period, Zaniolo’s growth put him in the background. Paulo Fonseca played him only for a few minutes since his return with the group.
But now Cangiz Under has a great chance again. He can make the Roma fans happy playing great football and helping his side in the development of the offensive strategies. The Giallorossi need to score more goals and Under may be the right player to do that.
