Roma boss Paulo Fonseca spoke today ahead of his side’s league match tomorrow against Udinese. The Giallorossi will travel to Udine for tomorrow evening’s affair at 20.45 CET.
Borja Mayoral is undergoing his medical examinations, what can you say about him?
He is a good player but I don’t want to talk about him because he is not our player yet.
It was a good performance against Juventus, will you use the same team?
I can’t always say who in the team will play. I don’t think tomorrow I will change much but let’s see tomorrow.
Were you surprised by the words of Diawara’s agent?
Yes. Diawara has always played and is one of those who learned the most last season. He is a very important player for the team and there are no problems with him. If the agent thinks this is the right way to make some sort of an impression and to pressure me, he’s gotten it wrong. I must say that Diawara was very important for the team, he still is and he is working very well.
You only used 3 substitutions in the first game and 2 in the second. Do you have little faith in the bench?
No, I trust everyone. I do not have anything else to say about this.
With the transfer market nearing the end, are you satisfied? Do you feel you have a more prepared Roma than last year?
I’m not talking about the market. We have a few days until it closea and then I’ll discuss it.
Does Pellegrini express himself better playing further back?
For me, he can play in many positions and he played well there against Juve. I think he played a great match.
Is Bruno Peres ready to return tomorrow?
No, Bruno started working with us not long ago and he is not in a good moment from a physical standpoint so we have to wait a little longer for him. He is recovering.
