Rubrica in inglese gestita dagli amici del Roma Club Dublino
Something is not right. The day after the Cup match, the team mutinied against those who had placed all the blame on former team manager Gianluca Gombar, asking for reinstatement among other things. But if it wasn’t just Gombar’s fault, who else had to be aware of certain field regulations: perhaps his coach and staff? In short, the team complained that someone had not taken responsibility for him, with poor Lorenzo Pellegrini who immediately became aware of what was happening.
From that moment on, the scapegoat became Edin Dzeko, guilty of a few words too many addressed to Fonseca and his staff, with the team that then wins the next game with La Spezia on a razor’s edge, coincidentally thanks to Lorenzo, new Captain at Edin’s own expense, excluded from the coach. The hug with the players on the pitch is perhaps a sign that now a part of the team is with the coach, while Dzeko has been sidelined for the alleged dispute, and there is someone who would like him away from Rome immediately. But why.
Only a few weeks ago with Sampdoria he made us win the game at the bottom of the class. Given that the Bosnian has not performed as he should this year so far, at the age of 35, he remains the champion leader of this team, he is as integral and decisive as Ronaldo and Ibra can be. If it’s not a question of money or engagement then he must absolutely stay. If Fonseca makes it a personal matter he is wrong and it would not be right, but if it is to give a signal to the team then it is good, but now the relationship must be mended. If Edin has asked to return and make himself available with the right commitment, then Fonseca must put him back in. Then we will do the reckoning accounts in June. With all.
Roma need everyone now if they want to reach the Champions League, we can’t rely on Mayoral alone. With Verona at the gates, it is important to be energized, united, all together to reach the fourth place goal. A Verona that is a bit of a compromise between Atalanta and Sassuolo, a short, fast team that can hurt anyone. A game that you can only win if you play from Rome. The approach must not be the one seen with Lazio but not even the one seen with Spezia. We start again from minute 93, from Lorenzo’s goal. Together.
