Cassetti evaluates Roma

Former AS Roma right-back Marco Cassetti has spoken to Il Romanista about his former club.

“Let’s start by saying that last year they had a fantastic season, even though it didn’t bring any trophies, they encountered a Juventus who set a points record. Second place, however, was important for Mr. Garcia. Nowadays, being in Europe is what counts. I think he’s creating a nice mix of young and old (players). I’m convinced that the older ones, like this past year with Maicon and De Sanctis, will bring a great contribution in terms of personality and maturity, in a competition like this (Serie A), which is not easy, he (Garcia) must be able to raise the younger ones (players) and helping them to express themselves to the best of their ability.”
