FONSECA: “the move to Roma is not a question of money. Was more generous offer”

Former head coach of “Shakhtar” Paulo Fonseca explained the reasons that led him last summer to leave the camp of “miners” and to go to Italy in the ranks of the Roma.

“Transition in “Roma” – it was a big challenge for me. I always thought that Italy is a serious challenge for coaches, especially foreigners. I’ve always had ambitions to work in the best European leagues. In Italy the championship is very difficult, if not the most complex from a tactical point of view. I was thrilled when my agent Marco Abreu told about the options, and that Roma are among them. After that, I was focused on what was to become the coach of the “wolves”. The year before I played against Roma with Shakhtar in the Champions League and saw the atmosphere of the Olimpico, and the passion with which fans treat their team. The city has also been among the factors that attracted me. Several aspects came together that convinced me to lead Roma. And the question is not about the money. I was more generous from a financial point of view options. However, I wanted to test himself in the championship, where tactically a lot different from other Championships. Now I was just confirming their expectations,” said Fonseca.

We will remind, before suspension of the Italian championship due to the coronavirus, “Roma” took the fifth place in the table behind Atalanta, running fourth on three points.
