Having already sacked Claudio Ranieri and appointed Vincenzo Montella as the successor, As Roma, still haven’t produce a significant improvement especially in the stability of the team that can be seen with the defeat against Shaktar Donetks in the Champions League. Not only the result, the behavior of their players are becoming really dissapointing recently, especially when the team are losing as the likes of Philipe Mexes, Daniele De Rossi and Marco Borriello, were recognized creating some problems on the match against Shaktar.
Mexes, who has already had series of disciplinary issues this season, once again picked up a sending off against Shaktar that undoubtedly troubled his team on that match, resulting in a 3-0 defeat that effectively sent Roma out of the competition. De Rossi himself was caught in some personal vendetta with the Ukranian team’s player, Dario Srna, as the Italian international was spotted elbowing the Kroasian by the camera despite escaping the referee’s attention.
Meanwhile, a rather personal issues is going into Borriello’s path as the striker looked to create an internal problem with his teammates and the fan after selfishly ignoring his coach’s order in taking a penalty that he eventually missed. Speaking after the match, Montella revealed that Borriello was not the designated penalty taker as he already chose David Pizzarro as the one responsible for it, however the former Ac Milan striker stated that he took the penalty because he wanted to score a goal after having a drought for quite a while.
This issues could lead more problems for Roma in their remaining fixtures especially if Montella can’t prompted his authority in handling his team, with so many big egos on the team, getting themselves back on the right track might be tough for the former striker. However, should the capital club aren’t able to clear away their issues, they could be in danger of ruining their season as a place in European football is already in jeopardy at the moment.
Surely saving Roma’s season for Montella would be bringing at the very least European football for the capital club as without that kind of insurance undoubtedly there will be plenty important players that will leave the club next summer, despite the club having a new owner. If reports were to be trusted, Phelipe Mexes might be the first name that won’t be staying at the club, as his current disciplinary issues on the field and poor performances might be caused by his decision to join Milan in the summer. Aside from Mexes, there are also several players that are being linked with many clubs and with the current dismayed condition at the Giallorossi, there are strong possibilities that many important stars might look for a new club.
