Fonseca lauds Roma’s attacking display in rout over Parma


Roma boss Paulo Fonseca was interviewed by Sky Sport after his side dismantled Parma by a scoreline of 3-0 this afternoon in the Italian capital.

The Giallorossi scored all of three of their goals in the first half against Fabio Liverani’s side in a dominant display as Roma now sit second in the Serie A table.

“We had an excellent game, especially in the first half as we scored three goals. In fact, we could’ve done even more,” said the Portuguese coach.

“The lads played a great game. In the second half, we managed the game well and created more opportunities to increase the scoreline.”

“My future? It’s not up to me, but I’m not worried. I’m only focusing on my work and our games. I’m very satisfied because the team is playing well and we’re winning. The club is more important, as is playing matches like today’s.”

Fonseca was also asked about the impact of attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who scored a brace and increased his league goal tally to 5.

“He’s an intelligent player and a great professional who can play in multiple positions. His attitude is a great example for everyone to follow.”

“Dzeko’s absence? He’s an important player for us, as are Smalling and Pellegrini. What’s most important is that our identity remained the same even though we used different players today.”

“Mayoral also had a good display. He scored thanks to his great movement — he’s growing and starting to gain more confience,” he concluded.
