Nicolò Zaniolo’s answer comes from the pitch, underlined by Josè Mourinho who doesn’t hesitate to let them know. An answer that should make some of the local press think that feeds on alleged insinuations that have nothing to do with reality.
After the beautiful victory in Genoa, seasoned by the usual useless controversies, Nicolò is there and plays a great game, in the position perhaps most congenial to him, as second striker behind Abraham. We said earlier, Nico needs space and in that more central position he manages to express himself at his best, contrary to the one seen so far secluded on the wing. In all of this, Tammy himself also benefits, despite a couple of incredible errors in front of goal. But in the meantime he too is more active and present, in the heart of the action, as demonstrated by the two goals, of which the reverse one is very nice.
In turn, the other great performances of a surprising El Sharaawy on the wing and a revived Mkhitaryan in the middle. Three-man defense with Smalling’s return to the centre. Roma turns, wins over and qualifies for the next round of the Conference League. Now it remains to be seen whether he will be able to finish first, with Bodo Glimt currently still ahead with a point above. Everything will be decided in Sofia.
In the meantime, it’s time to turn the page. Torino arrives on Sunday, a very difficult team. With Veretout suspended, already a second consecutive penalty failed, a trend like Jorginho, it will be interesting to understand how Mourinho will change. Same unscrupulous set-up, with the return of Pellegrini, or is it back to four or with the inclusion of another Darboe-type midfielder? We’ll see.
Meanwhile, the Special One is adapting to needs very wisely, looking for the right set-up in the hope of bringing better results at this time. At the moment it only counts to score points, to remain clinging to the train that leads to fourth place. Every year after the Christmas break that train leaves and never stops. So, in January a Dalot and a Zacharia are welcome. Meanwhile, we enjoy this victory with the awareness that a Zaniolo like this can be that extra weapon that could make us dream from here on out. In all this, an eye also to future prospects, among the various Bove and Zalewsky, here is Missori after the tale Felix. Come on Mou. Come on Roma.
