Schick, Kluivert and Cristante have not seen much Serie A action so far this season, despite being highly rated by Di Francesco. The reason being he has had to postpone his heavily youth-centric policy to allow for experience to steady them during a testing start to the season.October 11, 2018
Roma, under Eusebio Di Francesco, invested heavily in the summer transfer market, bringing in €130m worth of talent, including €26m for Steven Nzonzi and €24 for Javier Pastore.
However the big news was the spending on some of Europe’s brightest young talents, including Justin Kluivert from Ajax, and Bryan Cristante and Patrik Schik from Atalanta and Sampdoria respectively.
Building for the future is great, but a lack of experience has been a problem in the short term.
