His was not a 10 season, but the Giallorossi need him after two games to forget
Four goals, five assists, a percentage of successful passes of 78%, first Roma player in Serie A for fouls suffered: 43, total tenth place in a ranking dominated by Joao Pedro with 57. Nicolò Zaniolo’s season, for now, is not from 10 in the report card, because returning continuously after crusader operations, Covid and a pandemic, is not easy. But it is undeniable that when he is next to Abraham Roma is a more unpredictable and dangerous team. That’s why, after the two draws against Genoa and Sassuolo and the defeat in the Italian Cup against Inter, Roma clings (also) to him and his desire for revenge.
Mistakes and bad luck
Against Dionisi’s team there was no disqualification, but the last two appearances were to be forgotten, for opposite reasons: against Genoa he was canceled a wonderful goal for a stomp from Abraham and was sent off for having protested against Abisso . Not only that: in addition to the injury, the insult, since he had been booked for taking off his shirt in the exultation under the Curva. The goal was canceled, not the yellow. In Milan, against Inter, he failed to score one by one, making an easy goal with his foot. And that mistake still hasn’t gone down. This is why Roma expects a 360-degree reaction against Verona, given the importance of Zaniolo in the team and also considering his relationship with Abraham, on and off the pitch.
When the company returns to deal with renewals, Zaniolo will be among the first to be called. The relations with his agent, Claudio Vigorelli, are excellent, the contacts are constant (even for other players, especially young players) and the feeling is that it will not be difficult to agree once you have chosen to continue together. The market sirens are there, it will be inevitable to hear them both for Zaniolo himself and for Roma, but the future is still to be written. Now he counts the present and a team that needs to find him 100%.
