ahead of their next Serie A match. Roma is currently sitting in fourth place while Napoli is sixth with 14 points. Fonseca, Roma boss confirms that

Edin Dzeko

will start in the match against Napoli.

“Dzeko is ready, he will play from the start,” assured the coach in his press conference.

“Mancini and Ibanez trained today, there’s a good chance we’ll see them on the pitch too. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pedro don’t need too much rest, they’re as enthusiastic as children.”

Fonseca was asked if his team could be considered a Scudetto contender:

“It’s still early days and we have to wait quite a few more rounds before we make any evaluations, but I have no doubts that Juventus and Inter will fight to the end of the season for the title.

“Then there are other clubs who might get close to these two clubs, but it’s too early to say. We did not beat Juve or Milan, but we did play well against them. We want to play with courage tomorrow as well.

“Since the last time, we played against Napoli, Roma have improved a great deal, there has been undeniable progress. We have a lot more faith in our capabilities, too.

“I watched all Napoli’s games, they are strong and courageous. I expect a difficult game because even when they did lose this season, they didn’t really deserve to.”
