Roma coach Paulo Fonseca convinced by squad's 'quality'

New AS Roma coach Paulo Fonseca is convinced by the potential of the team he's inherited.

Fonseca's move from Shakhtar Donetsk was confirmed this week.

He said, “Roma have a lot of quality in the squad. The most important thing I need to understand is the best way to use the players to make the most of their abilities.

“I believe that a lot of the players have the quality to play the courageous, ambitious, attacking game that I want to implement. A style where we dominate the opponent. I am sure the players have the qualities required for that.

“I generally like to play in a 4-2-3-1 - but the system is not the most important thing. The most important thing is the dynamics and the principles within that system. I hope to build a very dynamic team here.

“I am sure that we will build a team that the supporters can be proud of. This will happen, I'm sure of it. A courageous team, an ambitious team. And if you have these ingredients then you will have a better chance of winning."
