De Rossi discusses Angeliño’s importance to Roma’s success

Andy Mattioli

Spanish fullback Angeliño received considerable praise from the man who wanted him at Roma in the first place, namely head coach Daniele De Rossi.

De Rossi – on whose instructions Roma signed Angeliño in the January window – praised the 27-year-old and discussed his importance to the team’s success going forward after last night’s 3-0 win over Frosinone.

“I like him a lot, both as a person and footballer,” De Rossi told reporters in his post-match press confernece.

“He is a player worthy of Roma, he can play in any team in the world – he is that good. He is integrating very well, I would like him to push even more offensively, he hasn’t played for a long time and we have to manage him carefully.”

“When I tell him to help out in defense more it becomes easier for us to play out from the back but we lose an attacking solution,” he noted.
