Petrachi: Roma no feeder club!

Gianluca Petrachi believes Roma’s work in the transfer market over the summer proves they are not ‘a feeder club for anyone’.

Kostas Manolas and Stephan El Shaarawy were the only starters to leave Roma as they managed to convince Edin Dzeko into not only knocking back interest from Inter but also signing a new contract.

“Mkhitaryan preferred Roma over a few more million, knowing he was choosing a club who best suited his sporting needs,” Petrachi said at Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s official unveiling.

Mkhitaryan braced for Roma pressure

Roma new boy Henrikh Mkhitaryan says he is braced for the pressures of playing for the Giallorossi.

Mkhitaryan was unveiled as a Roma player on Tuesday, the versatile attacker having arrived from Arsenal on a season-long loan.

“I am happy to be here,” began the 30-year-old.

“It has been a hard time [for me] before coming here and now I start a new adventure. I know where I am coming, I know what the team is playing for, what the goals are for this club and of course I will do my best to help achieve those goals.

Euro 2020: Mkhitaryan crushes Bosnia

Roma stars Henrikh Mkhitaryan – a brace – and Edin Dzeko were on target in Italy’s Euro 2020 group, as Armenia beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-2.

It was a very Giallorossi-themed affair in Yerevan, part of Euro 2020 qualifying Group J.

Just days after their 3-1 loss to Italy, Armenia took the lead within four minutes thanks to Mkhitaryan dribbling around the goalkeeper.

His Roma teammate Dzeko got the equaliser, having already rattled the woodwork, by flicking in Amer Gojak’s cross from the left.

Italy take the Mkhi in Armenia

The Azzurri did just about enough to grind out a win over 10-man Armenia, but it was a reality check for Giancarlo Rinaldi.

It wasn’t pretty nor very much deserved, that’s for sure. If grinding out wins in uninspiring fashion is a symptom of coming down with a winning mentality, then this might be just what the Azzurri team doctor ordered. For the rest of us, enthused by some of the nice football seen in previous outings, a flattering triumph over Armenia felt about as good as chugging down your cough medicine when you are six years old.
