'Roma won't give up on Schick'

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco has assured Patrik Schick that the club will ‘wait’ for him. “Some players need longer than others…”

A lack of form and fitness has limited Schick to just three goals for Roma since his club-record transfer from Sampdoria last year, but Eusebio Di Francesco urged the striker to look at Lorenzo Pellegrini, who ‘wasn’t good enough a week ago’.

“Our test bench is every day. We must never stop showing our growth,” he said at a Press conference.

Karsdorp could return to Feyenoord

Roma defender Rick Karsdorp is being linked with a return to the Netherlands, after agent Mino Raiola was spotted at Trigoria yesterday.

The Dutchman signed for the Giallorossi in the summer of 2017, but made just one appearance last season due to a series of knee injuries.

This season was expected to be a breakthrough year, but he reportedly rowed with Coach Eusebio Di Francesco after the defeat to Milan.

Karsdorp’s attitude has also been questioned, and there has been talk that he’s struggling to settle in Italy.

‘Roma have Pastore alternatives’

Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco assures there are alternatives to Javier Pastore, and will play “either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3” against Viktoria Plzen.

The Giallorossi face the Czech champions tonight in their second Champions League group fixture, but will be without one of their big summer signings.

“We play either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3,” Di Francesco pointed out in an interview with Roma TV.

“Pastore is a classic trequartista, but [Bryan] Cristante, [Lorenzo] Pellegrini, [Ante] Coric and [Nicolo] Zaniolo can also play that role.

EDF: Here’s what Roma need…

Eusebio Di Francesco believes Roma are only missing ‘balance’ and Edin Dzeko’s goals ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Viktoria Plzen.

Big wins against Frosinone and Lazio have let Roma regain their form and eased the pressure on Di Francesco, but the Coach made it clear his side could ill-afford to slow down, while singling out the ‘very important’ Dzeko.

“I’ve just reiterated a concept to my players,” he said at a Press conference.

Eagle circling the limping Wolf

Lazio's eagles can see their city cousins in trouble and would relish a killer blow in the Derby della Capitale, writes Richard Hall.

An injured wolf is wandering over the hills of Rome, its wounds are superficial, but it needs time to heal. All the time, an eagle circles above, waiting and hoping that the wolf is eventually weak enough so that it can ultimately feast.

Lazio really are looking down on Roma in the Serie A table, and as the Derby Della Capitale approaches this afternoon, they will certainly be hoping that, despite a midweek resurgence from the Giallorossi, they can still deal them a hammer blow that could send their enemy’s season into turmoil.
