Zaniolo and Dzeko away from Rome at the beginning of the transfer market? Fonseca wanted to silence these rumors by publicly defining them as two fundamental players for the Giallorossi cause.
"Zaniolo is no accident and Dzeko is not dissatisfied", Fonseca used the gift of synthesis to remove the two attackers from the transfer market. In short, if it were for him, the two jewels would not move from the capital.
Here are the statements made by the Portuguese coach before Roma-Fiorentina (from Corriere dello Sport ):
“For me there is no Zaniolo case. I have always told the truth and there are no problems. These kinds of problems are in all teams. The important thing is to solve. We talked, it's all right.
Zaniolo? He's fine, but we can't forget that he only trained once in the last days before the last game. Let's see tomorrow, we want to manage it well after six months of injury.
Edin Dzeko? He's fine, he's not unhappy and he's very motivated. It is important for me to feel that he is motivated. I'm not thinking about the market, I'm only thinking of Fiorentina. It will be a difficult game.
Fight for fifth place? I don't know what the easy games are here. I don't know if their schedule is easier. We have to think about our games and win tomorrow against a team that is doing very well. "
