Paulo Fonseca's Roma experience began with the greatest ambitions and high expectations. In the end it was short-lived and rather disappointing. In his two seasons in charge, the Portuguese coach led the Wolves to 5th and 7th finishes, definitely not what the American owners of the club envisioned The end result was that his contract was not renewed and somewhat surprisingly the club hired another Portuguese gaffer, “The Special One” Jose Mourinho himself. Although his recent past has been far from successful, Mourinho is still highly-regarded in Italy. His signing was seen as a statement of intent by Roma to challenge at the top of Serie A. It was immediately clear that they meant serious business as they offloaded an array of players whose time in the Capital had been over for some time. This included Bruno Peres and Juan Jesus. Moreover, they got rid of erratic goalkeeper Pau Lopez and also let go his deputy, Mirante. The goalkeeper issue was solved by hiring the experienced Rui Patricio from Wolverhampton, while Olsen, returning from loan may not be given a chance as Fuzato should be his deputy. With left-back Spinazzola injured for some time, they invested in Vina, a valid Uruguayan albeit inexperienced in European football. More was spent on Shomurodov, a forward who impressed a lot in his season at Genoa: he was supposed to represent an alternative to Dzeko up-front but, with the latter heading to Inter, could be given some playing time until a replacement for the Bosnian striker arrives. Roma's main "signing" could be represented by wonder kid Zaniolo's return after two seasons out injured. The club are still looking for a central midfielder and a defender, while a striker will be needed with Dzeko gone.

Target


Roma could challenge for a place in the top 4, but a lot will depend on Mourinho's ability to keep the often overbearing supporters off his back during the tough times.

Season Review
2020/2021

№7: Roma

Roma undoubtedly had the craziest of seasons. They only managed to avoid a serious disaster 5 minutes before the final whistle of the campaign as, drawing 2-2 at Spezia, they achieved qualification to the newly-born European Conference League. Had Mkhitaryan not scored, Sassuolo would have made the European spot in their place. Having been handed a 0-3 defeat away at Hellas Verona in week 1 due to some administrative issue, Roma actually did very well between weeks 2 and 8, playing bright football and scoring at will. Then, in week 9 they suffered the first of many heavy defeats on the road, at the hands of Napoli. While it did not bear any consequences then, it should have set off alarm bells that they were prone to unpredictable defeats. Between weeks 10 and 26, coach Fonseca and his boys continued their march, slipping occasionally but with their feet solidly set in the top 4, while also enjoying a great Europa League campaign. Then, everything started going downhill. Between weeks 27 and 34 they won only once, against Bologna, while suffering absurd defeats to the likes of Parma, Torino or Cagliari. In the meantime, their European run also came to an end in the semi-finals as they were thrashed 2-6 away at Manchester United in the first leg. The main reason for such a fall is certainly represented by an incredible array of injuries that plagued all the departments, in particular the defence and the midfield. At some point, the coach had to make do without 12 players. Fonseca tried to stop the hemorrhage in the final weeks adopting a 4-2-3-1 formation instead of the 3-4-2-1 that had characterized their campaign that far and it worked out. Roma lost only 1 out of the last 4, winning 2, but seriously risked watching the next European competitions from home. Veretout and Mkhitaryan were the heroes of the campaign with 10 goals and 2 assists and 13 goals and 11 assists respectively. Karsdorp did well on the right while Borja needed some time before leaving a mark. On the other hand, Zaniolo never played and Dzeko fell out with Fonseca at some stage. Fonseca represented another disappointment for Roma, whose new owners aimed at a top 4 finish, and so the Portuguese will be let go with Mourinho expected to lead the Wolves to a new winning era.
