Former Roma player Gigi Di Biagio shared his opinion on Daniele De Rossi’s progress as the team’s head coach.

In an interview with Retesport, Di Biagio said of De Rossi: “I’m not surprised by what he’s done: he took Roma in ninth place and brought them to a better position, on paper it was easy to achieve better results, but in this way he was certainly very good at imposing himself, with a series of important results”

“He’s showing great intelligence, but I didn’t have any doubt regarding his impact.”

“The day Roma appointed him I immediately said that he didn’t seem like a simple interim coach. De Rossi at Roma feels like a long-term solution. I would have no doubts and I would renew his contract. Then the final evaluations belong to the club and they must be carried out with consideration.”

“Pellegrini? This year he didn’t do well at the beginning of the season and for this reason it’s right to criticize him, but I don’t understand some of the complaints.”

“I think he has room for improvement in terms of malice, he can impose himself even more in terms of leadership as captain and he must do so, I often tell him this. He’s got the potential to become a top player in Europe.”
