Daniele De Rossi made an impactful debut on the Roma bench, steering the team to a 2-1 victory over Verona. This triumph followed a challenging period for the club, marked by the departure of former manager Jose Mourinho due to a series of disappointing results.
Roma’s legendary figure, De Rossi, quickly implemented his tactical approach, opting for a 4-3-2-1 formation. Despite facing challenges such as the absence of key players due to suspensions, international duties, and injuries, Roma successfully clinched the win.
The breakthrough occurred when Stephan El Shaarawy set up Romelu Lukaku, who calmly found the back of the net from close range. Shortly after, Lukaku turned provider, assisting Lorenzo Pellegrini, whose finish doubled Roma’s lead.
