Rome are out. Eusebio Di Francesco is out. Monchi is next. What was in the air for weeks or maybe months. There is little to say, indeed a lot. But dwelling too much on what could be and has not been now no longer makes sense.
We have always had confidence, from the choices of the technician to the transfer campaign made during the summer for what concerned the operation Nainggolan and Strootman, with the disappointment of the timing for the latter. Looking back, maybe Kevin had to be kept.
But the key is the signing of Pastore. A player who evidently did not serve the purpose. And I also put Nzonzi, I did not expect to be so slow and useless to the cause. Now it’s gone. We need to start over again, with whom and with what objectives we do not know. We’ll see.
Meanwhile the aftermath after Porto continue. Let’s leave the VAR out. Of course, the decisions of the referee are debatable, but then if I have to judge the team performance then it’s not good enough. A normal Roma team was enough to beat this Porto, this is the big regret.
Unfortunately the team did not play for 90 minutes. The awakening in extra time was what could change everything. But in throwing the ball in there was no way. If we had moved to the quarterfinals we would have only lengthened the agony, today Roma is this, and the fourth place must now be reached by any means. So, I say welcome home to King Claudio. I do not know if it will be enough but now it is only necessary to have faith. A miracle is needed.
