Schick: Less Leipzig pressure

Patrik Schick says he is enjoying life at RB Leipzig, where there is “less pressure” and “more anonymity” than at Roma.

Schick remains Roma’s record signing at €42m but struggled to deal with the high stakes of the Olimpico, scoring just five goals in two seasons.

He chose to relaunch himself at Leipzig over the summer, although he has so far managed just 27 minutes of Bundesliga football this term.

“Here I have the possibility of playing in an atmosphere with less pressure than at Roma,” he told Bild.

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.
