ROME – Mourinho is on vacation and is waiting to get to know the new Rome. She is in constant contact with Tiago Pinto and as the day of the retreat approaches (set for July 4th), he hopes to see the Roma he has in mind take shape in the next few weeks, in order to work with the squad quite defined from the first days of preparation. The Special One gave indications on how to improve Roma, which after winning the Conference League aims to re-enter Champions. The coach is very demanding, he expects the arrival of great players, but at the same time he knows that i Friedkin they cannot make large investments until after completing at least one major sale. Roma is one of the most active clubs up to now. He has practically already taken Matic (shortly to the official), the second goalkeeper Svilar (the Belgian naturalized Serbian underwent medical examinations in March) and is very close to Celikright back who will be the alternative to KarsdorpAnd Solbakkenwhich will be a reinforcement in attack, where Carles Perez is leaving and expects to know what the fate of Zaniolo.
Certainly something is still missing from a team that arrived last season sixth on the last day, risking to stay out of the Europa League until the end. For much of the championship he hoped to be able to reach fourth place, but the commitment to compete in the Conference League until winning it took away energy in the league. Before going on vacation Mourinho said that the goal of Rome must be to get closer to the top four of the standings. Milan, Inter, Naples and Juventus they still have something more. The defense improved in the season finale, but was not up to par with the top of the class. With 43 goals conceded it was the sixth of the championship, even with the clean sheet of Rui Patricio. But the performance of the attack was even more incomplete. There have been eight teams that have scored more than Roma. The only double-digit player was Abrahamthe second best scorer Pilgrims, with nine goals. Mourinho needs at least one more double-digit striker. Solbakken may be, who has never put his nose beyond the Arctic Circle? Roma lacked concreteness in the last meters and in the ability to transform the many offensive actions created into goals.
Rome, Abraham and the attack
Abraham in his first year in Rome he scored more than any other player in the Giallorossi history. He needed to settle into a new league and was one of the protagonists of the season. The English center forward has worked hard for the team, as well as having scored 27 goals this season, but the contribution of his team mates was definitely lacking. In part, he made up for the lack of goals of the other Pellegrini forwards, who reached nine. But El Shaarawy, Perez, Shomurodov himself they did not meet expectations. Also Mkhitaryan, which has often been used as a director, has remained far from the numbers recorded in past years. Zaniolo was decisive for the Cupbut has lived through a season of ups and downs.
Rome market, where to intervene
Roma are also missing two other pawns. The first is the director, whom Mourinho has been chasing for a year. The second is a central defender, considering the possible return to the back four. The deployment with the 3-man defense does not seem to be Mourinho’s favorite, it represented a solution taken in the running to ensure greater balance. But the module that the technician could propose is his classic 4-2-3-1. To do this, you need the right interpreters. The return of Spinazzola will guarantee different solutions on the left wing, with the young man Zalewski which can also play later. We need players who can enter the rotations permanently and guarantee the same intensity and quality as the owners. Tiago Pinto is working to improve the squad, the Rome market it has just begun.
