Daniele de Rossi was outstanding for AS Roma at centre-half in victory over Udinese.

Coach Luis Enrique was asked whether De Rossi will move to the centre-back position permanently after a fine performance tonight.

Enrique said: “It’s possible, but I think with three games in a week it might be physically difficult for him, as he has been carrying this hip problem for a while now. I always want to play with as much quality in defence as possible, as that is where moves begin from, so Daniele can take both roles. That’s important to have these options over the course of a season.”
