ROME – High tension at Roma after the bad start of 2020 for the Giallorossi. The team coached by Paulo Fonseca has been eliminated from the Italian Cup and has collected heavy defeats in the league against Turin and Sassuolo. These defeats allowed Atalanta to hook the Giallorossi in fourth place in the standings.
Not qualifying for the next Champions League would be a serious blow both from an economic and a technical point of view. It should also be remembered that Atalanta won 2-0 in Rome in the first leg taking forward in direct clashes with the Giallorossi.
Sassuolo-Roma, Petrachi furious about the team's performance in the first half.
In Reggio Emilia, Roma played the worst game of their season. Caputo and Boga looked like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the presence of a yellow and red supporter in constant difficulty. The Giallorossi closed the first part of the game on 3 to 0 for the opponents. This unworthy performance pushed the DS Petrachi to go down to the changing rooms of the Mapei Stadium at the end of the first half.
Petrachi made his voice heard by the players by placing them in front of their responsibilities. This outburst of his has had effects, albeit partial, since the Giallorossi managed to move to 2-3 before collapsing on the final 4-2.
But Petrachi's anger certainly doesn't end here, the DS didn't like Edin Dzeko's final behavior. Fonseca wanted to go to protest against the referee, Dzeko stopped him in favor of cameras. According to Petrachi, the coach must be the leader of the locker room and no player must allow himself to be overlooked.
