Fonseca ahead of Genoa: “We need a winger. Spinazzola will play”.


Roma boss Paulo Fonseca helps his pre-match press conference today ahead of tomorrow’s match against Genoa. Here’s what he had to say:

How’s the team?
They are good. They are motivated and have confidence. It is true that it is an important week with three games, but the team is doing well. Only the injured players are not well.

Given the disqualifications of Florenzi and Kolarov, have you consider altering formations?
No, Spinazzola and Santon will play.

Are you requesting help on the market?
Me, Petrachi and Fienga are trying to find a player for the wing. We need this player right now.

How is Cristante?
It’s best if we manage him and keep a close eye on things. He’s been out injured a long time. It is not easy for him to play two consecutive games, so tomorrow he will not play.

Will Çetin stay until the end of the season?
Yes, I don’t think anything will change. We haven’t discuss him going out on loan.

Have you ask them to make a new attempt for Politano?
No, we’re searching for another player in this role, not Politano.

In your opinion, was the negotiation between the two clubs well managed? Do you blame Inter?
I don’t know the situation well in detail. All I can say is I trust the directors so if they made this choice then I trust it. I have total trust in them. I wanted to have Politano here, it’s the truth. I must say, however, that I have full confidence in Petrachi and Fienga. If they decided this, then it means there was a reason.

Are Perotti, Juan Jesus and Pastore on the market?
No. Right now they are not.

For the attacker, are you looking abroad or in Italy?
We are only looking for a winger in place of Zaniolo. Nothing more.
