Euro 2020: Schick and Piatek on target

Patrik Schick bagged a brace for the Czech Republic, Krzysztof Piatek was decisive for Poland and Fabian Ruiz made his Spain debut in today’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Roma striker Schick struggles to find the back of the net at club level, but shows no such difficulties representing his country.

He scored both the Czech Republic goals to beat Bulgaria 2-1, although his Roma teammate Aleksandar Kolarov had a nightmare as Serbia lost 5-0 away to Andriy Shevchenko’s Ukraine.

Kolarov considers Fenerbahce

Roma full-back Aleksandar Kolarov is considering a move to Fenerbahce and prefers that destination to Inter, claim reports in Turkey.

According to Turkish transfer expert Sercan Hamzaoglu, Fenerbahce have offered Kolarov a two-year contract with option for an extra year on top and negotiations with his agent are ongoing.

Inter have also made an approach, but as they would only be prepared to give him a one-year deal with option for another season, he favours the move abroad.

Kolarov follows Dzeko to Inter?

After reportedly reaching an agreement for Edin Dzeko, Inter could follow that up by signing his Roma teammate Aleksandar Kolarov.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri have set their sights on the left-back who could possibly be leaving the Giallorossi in the summer, as he only has one year left on his contract.

The 33-year-old scored eight times in 33 Serie A games and is a real danger from set pieces, something Il Biscione was severely lacking this last season.

Kolarov return to Belgrade?

Aleksandar Kolarov could leave Roma this summer for a return to his boyhood club Red Star Belgrade.

He will be 34 in November and is not expected to receive another contract from the Giallorossi, with his current deal expiring in June 2020.

Although Kolarov started in the Red Star Belgrade youth academy, he never actually played for the senior team.

'Roma will feel De Rossi exit'

Aleksandar Kolarov admits Roma will only realise what Daniele De Rossi meant for them once he leaves the club.

Roma and De Rossi will sever ties at the end of the season, despite the midfielder’s one-club status, and Kolarov confessed his departure would leave a void at Roma.

“I consider him a brother,” the 33-year-old told DAZN.

“The first game I played for Roma was in Bergamo, against Atalanta. Captains tend to speak before certain games, but he does before every game.

Roma: Kolarov out of SPAL

Roma must do without Aleksandar Kolarov against Serie A rivals SPAL on Saturday, but Nicolo Zaniolo makes the cut.

Zaniolo has recovered from a calf injury in time for the game, but Kolarov has a thigh problem.

Daniele De Rossi, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Kostas Manolas and Cengiz Under also remain sidelined, although Edin Dzeko and Federico Fazio are back from suspension.

To make up for his lack of numbers, Claudio Ranieri has called up defender Riccardo Cargnelutti, midfielder Alessio Ricciardi and forward Zan Celar from Roma’s Primavera squad.

As Monchi looks prepared to leave Roma for Arsenal, Jay Cassano asks whether the sporting director’s time in the Eternal City has been successful.

Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo, Roma's sporting director, the man better known as Monchi, looks all but certain to trade capitals this summer, leaving Roma for the likes of Arsenal.
