Roma’s performance against Slavia Prague has been criticized by well-known journalist Ivan Zazzaroni in his editorial for the Corriere dello Sport. He said, “Roma showed its worst side against Slavia Prague, so the fans can rest assured: they won’t be able to repeat it in the derby, even if they wanted to.”
Zazzaroni also commented on the technical and tactical errors made by players such as Llorente, N’Dicka, and Bove, stating that they were unique in their monstrosity. He also pointed out Karsdorp’s shortcomings, saying, “When the ball comes to him, he always plays backwards, lacking the courage to dare.”
The journalist also warned about Kristensen, who was not included in the UEFA list, saying, “He’s not better.” He also criticized Lukaku for being often anticipated or neglected during the match.
El Shaarawy was accused of hiding during his time on the field, while Aouar was said to have not presented himself at all, forcing Mourinho to replace him quickly. Zazzaroni also commented on Paredes, stating, “We have seen the very sad Juventus version of him.”
This criticism from Zazzaroni highlights the disappointment with Roma’s performance and raises concerns ahead of their upcoming matches.
