Andrea Belotti has been far from impressive in his first few months as a Giallorossi player following a free transfer move earlier in the summer from Torino.
The ex-Granata captain has only scored two goals in 17 appearances across all competitions: both goals came in the Europa League.
As reported by La Repubblica, Belotti’s long stop during the summer – as he awaited a convincing proposal to come through – impacted his condition at the beginning of the season.
The Italian attacker was forced to skip the first international break in September in order to take part in more training drills at Trigoria along with newly arrived Mady Camara.
In the meantime, Jose Mourinho has found it difficult to integrate Belotti with the other attacks on the squad including Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurodov. All three struggled to score in Paulo Dybala’s absence.
With only a few more games to go before his contract with the Giallorossi is automatically extended for a further two years, Belotti is determined to make a positive impact in the second half to Roma’s season.
