La Repubblica (Ferazza) – Among the various doubts that accompany Paulo Fonseca this week, there isn’t one linked to the presence of Justin Kluivert this weekend against Sampdoria, a player who is almost always used by the Portuguese manager and valued for the speed he gives to the attacking actions.
Klulvert will have to help Nikola Kalinić this weekend as the Croatian replaces Edin Dzeko – who plays a vital role in Fonseca’s attacking mechanisms. Kalinić will also be supported by Nicolò Zaniolo, who’s currently on national team duty with Italy. Meanwhile, the conditions of Diego Perotti are still being evaluated but he could be called-up for the match. Meanwhile, Fonseca has a lot of dialogue this week with Javier Pastore, who continues to be an enigma at Roma. Fonseca, however, believes that the Argentine can change gears and have an affect on the Giallorossi’s season. The former Shakhtar manager would, therefore, like to give Pastore a place against Sampdoria, convinced he can still make a difference at the club.
