Diawara unhappy with his current situation at Roma, still likely to remain

RomaPress – There are still a few days left until the close of the transfer window and Roma are being linked with a host of incoming and outgoing operations.

One situation that has evolved over the last few days within the walls of Roma is the one pertaining to midfielder Amadou Diawara.

A member of the player’s entourage expressed to RomaPress that the Guinean is not happy with his current situation at the Giallorossi and would be willing to leave the club before the transfer window closes shut on Monday.

Despite his desire to leave, Diawara will in all likelihood remain at Roma due to the fact that there is hardly enough time for his representatives to find a new club, for all parties to reach an agreement, and to finalise a transfer all within 72 hours.

The player’s reasoning for wanting to leave the Italian capital, where he arrived just over one year ago, is twofold.

First, the 23 year-old was disheartened that the club did not support him more in the media after Roma were handed an automatic 0-3 loss to Hellas Verona.

The Giallorossi mistakenly added Diawara’s name to the “Under-22” portion of their officially submitted team list, which made him ineligible to partake in the match. Diawara feels as if he was made a scapegoat for the situation and wished he received more backing and public support from the club.

Furthermore, Roma boss Paulo Fonseca recently moved Lorenzo Pellegrini from an attacking role in his 3-4-2-1 set-up to the midfield, placed alongside Jordan Veretout. The change led to the ex-Napoli man being relegated to the bench for last weekend’s affair against Juventus — a decision that hasn’t sit well with him.
