Fonseca ahead of Atalanta: “I won’t make many changes from Thursday.”


Roma manager Paulo Fonseca refused to get drawn into talk for the Scudetto ahead of his side’s test in Bergamo tomorrow against Atalanta.

The Giallorossi boss was adamant that the objective for his team this season is to finish higher in table than they did last year — even though they find themselves only four points behind league leaders Milan.

“It’s still only December, there’s so much football left to be played,” he said at his pre-match press conference. “All the teams near the top are close to one another, but it’s still too early to talk about this.”

”Tomorrow we face a strong team that plays very physically. We didn’t have much time to recover from the match against Torino but I don’t plan on making more than 2-3 changes to the team.”

“Pedro and Dzeko? Pedro could start. He’s doing very well and is an important player for our team. Edin, meanwhile, is doing a very important job for our team. He may only have scored 4 goals himself, but he’s been involved in many others.”

“You’ll see tomorrow who starts in goal. This match, though, is just like the others — a very important one and one we want to win.”
