Roma debuts for Kolarov and Defrel

Roma are expected to give Gregoire Defrel and Aleksandar Kolarov their debuts in tonight’s International Champions Cup game with Tottenham Hotspur.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side drew 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain in the opening match of the tournament, losing on a penalty shoot-out.

Tonight the Coach will be able to count on new buys Kolarov and Defrel, who could well be thrown in at the deep end as part of the starting XI.

Stephan El Shaarawy, Rick Karsdorp, Alessandro Florenzi and Emerson Palmieri are unavailable.

Kolarov right man for Roma

Roma fans underestimate just how important Aleksandar Kolarov can be after arriving from Manchester City, writes Tom Scholes.

Roma confirmed the signing of former Lazio and Manchester City defender Aleksander Kolarov with probably the best announcement video we have seen all summer. The video itself may have received a large amount of praise for its humour and originality, but what struck me more was that no one was talking about the signing itself.

Kolarov: Lazio my rivals now

Aleksandar Kolarov accepts Lazio “are my rivals on the pitch” now after joining Roma late on Saturday.

Kolarov spent three years at Lazio between 2007 and 2010, prior to joining Manchester City, but the left-back has since moved to Roma, in a transfer that saw him branded a “worm” by a group of his former supporters.

“I’m very happy to be here. Today’s my first day and I hope everything goes well,” the 31-year-old told Roma TV.

Roma have announced the signing of left-back Aleksandar Kolarov from Manchester City for €5m.

“I am extremely happy to be here,” Kolarov told the club’s official website.

“I will give 100 percent and more for Roma. My objective is always the same: to win.”

Kolarov close to Roma

It’s thought Aleksandar Kolarov is close to joining Roma, but the deal isn’t done yet.

The former Lazio full-back has emerged as a target for their city rivals in recent days, and it’s believed Manchester City would be willing to sell.

According to Sky, the English club will allow him to leave once they get a replacement in his role, for example Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy.

The Giallorossi are also not quite ready to close the deal, as they’re still interested in Antonio Barreca.
