Fonseca can see Pellegrini becoming Roma captain

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca can see Lorenzo Pellegrini becoming club captain.

Fonseca and midfielder Pellegrini were praised by Roma legend Francesco Totti last week.

The coach responded: “Obviously, I am very happy to hear that and it's wonderful to see my work appreciated.

"I think Pellegrini has everything it takes to become the Roma captain in future, so I agree with Totti on that."

On Serie A's resumption, Fonseca added: “I talk to the players all the time, as we gave them individual training schedules, analyse their work and their food. It's difficult to say how quickly we could get the players back in shape to play after resuming training, but I don't think it should be too long, as they have never really stopped thanks to this work at home."
