Former Roma striker Roberto Pruzzo discussed Roma’s struggles in the first half of the season and addressed Tammy Abraham’s shortcomings as the club’s leading goal-scorer from last season.

“It’s difficult to judge the team at this point,” Pruzzo told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “On paper, this team can aim to qualify for the Champions League. But, it’s normal that Wijnaldum and Dybala’s absence limited Mourinho’s work.”

“I expected to see more from this team in terms of playing style, perhaps even a change in formation, but these are considerations that Mourinho could also make going forward.”

“Abraham? I try to defend him any way I can. There’s very few strikers like him, but he needs to wake up. Without him, it’s difficult to make up for it up front.”
