Dunga: 'Fiorentina have the new Cafu'

Carlos Dunga has given the seal of approval to new Fiorentina buy Romulo. “He reminds me of Marcos Cafu.”

The Viola officially secured a deal for the Atletico Paranaense full-back this week and he certainly impressed former Brazil manager Dunga.

“He can reach the by-line remarkably easily,” Dunga told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Romulo has tactical intelligence and above all incredible precision in sending crosses to the middle of the box.

“In Brazil many say he reminds them of Douglas Maicon and Cafu, but in my view the similarity is only really with Cafu.

“Maicon is a different player, whereas Romulo has that same speed and change of pace as the former Roma right-back.”
