The past season was not a memorable one for Roma: in fact, they never really managed to fight for the Scudetto, a negative run at the start of the new year saw them losing all hope of the title and for a top 4 finish, well before springtime, but a final 8-game undefeated run allowed them to secure the 5th standing and a direct Europa League qualification. At some point, coach Fonseca, in his first season in charge of the team, looked doomed and about to be sacked, but the surprising adoption of a back 3 allowed him to give solidity to his defence and to regain some confidence from the management and the fans. The Portuguese gaffer was logically confirmed during the summer but he will have to deal with a completely different management from last season, as after exhausting discussions, U-turns and negotiations, the Pallotta era came to and end and the Friedkin one started. As with every new President arriving in Rome, Friedkin is ambitious and longing for great results but he will first have to adapt himself to a complicated reality he knows nothing about, yet. The squad lost a couple of protagonists over the summer in Smalling, their best defender in the past campaign, who returned to his parent club, Manchester United, and Kolarov, a left-back turned into a solid centre-back by Fonseca, who left for Inter. Besides them, Kalinic and Zappacosta also saw the end of their loans, but they had both failed to leave a mark for different reasons. The likes of Veretout, Mancini, Mkhitaryan and Perez all earned themselves a confirmation and they are worth all the money spent for turning their loans into permanent deals. So far, the sole new face to have arrived at the club is represented by Pedro, who hardly ever made the pitch last season at Chelsea, and seems to be well-past his glory days. Roma are currently looking for a goalkeeper, as Lopez was often disastrous, a couple of solid defenders, while hoping to have Smalling back from Manchester United again, a central midfielder, a centre-forward and one more attacking midfielder, considering that Zaniolo will miss out for a long time again.

Target


Roma will be aiming at a return to the top 4 but, at the moment, they seem more likely to fight for a Europa League spot.

Season Review
2019/2020

№5: Roma

A new dawn at Roma brought mixed results in an inconsistent season. As expected Claudio Ranieri didn't remain as the permanent manager whilst club stalwarts Daniele De Rossi and Alessandro Florenzi both left the club. Paulo Fonseca was appointed as the new coach and made a very respectable start to his maiden Serie A campaign - losing just twice in 17 league games before the new year (W10 D5). The honeymoon period ended at the dawn of the new year and unsurprisingly coincided with an injury to last year's player of the season Nicolo Zaniolo. The mercurial youngster didn't return until the final few games of the campaign. Roma lost 5 of their first 7 league games in 2020 and, just when it seemed they were stabilising themselves, the Coronavirus pandemic struck and any chance of momentum was shunted. After the restart, the Giallorossi initially struggled badly and a run of three straight defeats left them potentially missing out on Europe but Fonseca made a brave and ultimately fruitful decision. A switch in system from 4-2-3-1 to three at the back was a revelation. Roma recorded 7 wins and a draw in their final 8 games of the season to secure 5th place and Europa League football. They'll want to do better in that competition next season after being easily schooled by Sevilla in the last 16 this term. Edin Dzeko was Roma's standout performer. After a relatively poor previous season - it looked as though the Bosnian was set to leave but a change of heart and the extra responsibility of being named club captain saw a resurgence in the big striker. He not only bagged 19 goals across all competitions but he got into double figures for assists too. Chris Smalling was a surprisingly resounding success after joining from Manchester United. He quickly adapted to his new surroundings and became a fan favourite but the club face a fight to make his loan move permanent. A strong end to the season has been supplemented by a takeover at the club and the supporters will be hoping the manager is backed in the transfer market by the new hiearchy.
