Roma legend and current Youth Coordinator Bruno Conti did not shy away from praising Roma’s young star, Nicola Zalewski. The former Roma captain even went as far as admitting that he recognizes himself in the Polish international.
“Let me preface this by saying that what I’m about to say, I say it without bias for Roma,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“But among the young people playing today I recognize my way of playing the most in Roma’s Nicola Zalewski.”
“He has the ability to attack the spaces and dribble the ball just like I did, as well as his tendency to retreat he be useful in defensive coverage.”
“It is true that he now plays on the left flank, but I am convinced that he will soon become a useful player on both lanes.”
