Ex-Roma boss Paulo Fonseca: “Roma played the Derby really well.”

Andy Mattioli

Former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca continues to follow the Giallorossi as he waits for an exciting project to come along following his one-year sabbatical.

The Portuguese boss was interviewed by GOAL and confessed he caught some of the Derby della Capitale on TV. “I didn’t see the whole game, but only a portion of it,” he said.

“Roma played really well,” he admitted.

Fonseca was also asked about Nicola Zalewski – the Polish international was launched with the first team by Fonseca himself near the end of the last season – who was recently given the chance to start in consecutive games by Jose Mourinho.

“I am very happy for him because he is a very humble guy, a professional and he is very strong technically.”

He concluded, “I’m happy to see him play in the first team and to have seen him in an important match like the one against Lazio, it’s really nice.”
