Roma’s sporting director Petrachi is reportedly working on different profiles to replace Zaniolo. But Fonseca focuses on the next tough Serie A clash against Genoa.
Just a few more hours before Genoa-Roma. The Giallorossi on the road to face the local team while the main executives of the club are working incessantly to find the right player able to replace the young Italian star Nicolò Zaniolo.
The Portuguese coach spoke to the press today ahead of Genoa-Roma and albeit he is worried about the many injuries that have been affecting his group since the beginning of the season, he also wanted to talk about Roma’s next opponent.
When asked about the condition of his team, Fonseca stated that his men are fine, “motivated and confident. It’s true that this is an important week, with three important matches. The team is doing well, obviously, the injured players are not doing well.”
Roma’s coach is passing through an unbelievable moment. Seven or eight players are constantly injured and Fonseca had to find multiple tactical solutions to ensure the necessary balance for his team.
Meantime, Gianluca Petrachi and Guido Fienga are monitoring the market to purchase a new right-winger able to replace Zaniolo. Although Matteo Politano was Fonseca’s pick for that role, the Italian player is now back to Milan albeit Inter‘s coach Antonio Conte does not consider him a fundamental player for his group.
Reportedly, Roma are considering three profiles, Real Sociedad‘s Januzaj, Liverpool‘s Shaqiri, and Milan‘s Suso. Three players with different characteristics but equally useful on the right-offensive side of the pitch.
