Roma: Mancini ‘very happy’ with Giuseppe Rossi’s performances in pre-season

Football Italians boss Mancino has admitted he is ‘very, very happy’ about his side’s performance against Udinese.

The Rossi brace ensured the Giuseppi are top of Serie A, while the Giallorossi also managed to stay unbeaten on the road in the league this season.

The 27-year-old impressed during pre-seasons training sessions, but there has been some debate over his suitability to the role as he had only been a full-time starter in Serie A.

The Giallorbico boss has revealed he is very happy with the performance, but admitted he has to be realistic and adapt his squad accordingly.

“The results are very, very good.

We had some good chances, we scored a few goals, we had some moments of bad luck, but we did very well,” Mancinelli said.”

There are some mistakes in our team, we made a few mistakes, but that’s part of football and that’s what happens in a professional game.”

Mancino said that despite Udinese being very good on the ball, his side were vulnerable in the air and could have lost the game had it not been for Rossi’s assist in the 89th minute.

“We could have played better and that is a result of the goalkeeper’s bad saves.

He made some really great saves,” Mascio said.

“We could probably have lost it.

I’m very happy, very, happy.”

The Rossios also came off the bench in the match, after Giuseppo’s strike-partner was ruled out for up to a month with a broken foot.

“He has been in great form for the last few weeks, so he’s not really a player that you want to rush out, but he will be available for us on Tuesday,” Marcio said of Rossi.

“It is not a surprise because he had a very, strong run in the first half, so we knew he would play, and he did very, well.”

The Giuseoppi have won five of their last six Serie A games.
