3 Reasons for AS Roma's Appearance to Decline, Even though they were Capolista!

Jose Mourinho's AS Roma is experiencing a decline in performance in wading through the 2022/2023 season. Had won successive victories in the first four matches of the 2022/2023 Italian League, now the team's position has fallen to sixth.

Recently, Lorenzo Pellegrini and his friends were defeated by Atalanta in the Italian League continued on Monday morning WIB. This is AS Roma's second defeat in the Italian League this season after previously being defeated by Udinese.

Not only in the Italian League, AS Roma also started the Europa League with a less convincing track record.

On the first matchday, AS Roma were beaten 1-2 by Ludogorets, although in the second match, they could beat HJK Helsinki 3-0.

Obviously there is a decline in the performance of AS Roma. What caused it? Here is the review for you.

1. Squad Depth

AS Roma don't have a good squad depth. The quality between the starters and the reserves is not comparable.

In fact, every game, the substitute players who enter are just that. This makes Jose Mourinho's strategy easier to read.

Back line example. The three central defenders who are often used are Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling and Roger Ibanez. Due to the lack of commensurate replacements, all three are barely touched by rotation.

2. Hurricane Injury

Because the depth of the squad is bad, so if there is a storm of injuries hit the team, the coach has difficulty getting players who have the same quality as good.

This is what AS Roma experienced. Starting with the injury of the new player, Georginio Wijnaldum. Even though Wijnaldum has been plotted as a pillar player.

Then as the season progressed, the names of important players such as Rick Karsdrop, Nicolo Zaniolo, Stephan El Shaarawy and most recently Paulo Dybala were injured.

3. Lorenzo Pellegrini Sluggish

Lorenzo Pellegrini was AS Roma's best performer last season. His role was very important when he brought the Giallorossi to the Conference League champions.

But this season, Pellegrini's performance has declined. Most recently, he failed to become a penalty taker in the match against HJK Helsinki.

Even though the fertility of a Pellegrini is needed by AS Roma. Because the team cannot rely on continuous taps from Paulo Dybala and Tammy Abraham.
