A view on AS Roma's goalkeepers
Updated: Jan 29
A new stop on our journey through the goalkeepers of Serie A. Today we'll stop in the most beautiful city in the world, Rome, on the Giallorossi side.
AS Roma has experienced an inconsistent season. Mourinho's first year can be analyzed from two opposing points of view: on one hand, the great Portuguese manager's team-management skills have been outstanding. On the other hand, according to a purely technical analysis, the game has not been entirely convincing.
I've added a tactical analysis of Mourinho's first season, which you can watch:
However, a historical milestone should be highlighted: the victory of the first Conference League and the club's first European title. Less praiseworthy was the championship run, which ended in sixth place on the last day.
Rui Patricio 34 years old, with his contract expiring in 2024. Portugal calling Portugal. Rui Patricio is the man Mourinho has decided to bet on to secure the goal. An experienced profile, as the coach likes. Arrived from Wolverhampton last summer, after an uncertain start, he has emerged in the long run, being decisive in the important moments, the Conference League final being an example.
In 37 league appearances, he conceded 43 goals. To highlight the number of clean sheets, a good 15, also due to Roma's defensive play.
In view of Sorare, betting on a card from the Portuguese goalkeeper could be a good solution. Of course, given his age, if you are looking for a long-term investment, it is better to look for someone else.
24 years old. The young Italian-Brazilian has moved to UD Ibiza a free transfer, a team that plays in the Spanish second division. Definitely, a move aimed at playing more.
From Sorare's perspective, going to play in the second division may not be the best possible choice, despite the probable starting role. He's still young but for no he has no utility.
Pietro De Boer 20 years old, the contract expires in 2024. Very young third goalkeeper, with zero appearances for him. AS Roma Youth product. Unfortunately, nothing to report. Not desirable at present from a Sorare perspective.
Mile Svilar Born in 1999, he arrived on a free transfer from Benfica, where he played in the B team, in the Portuguese second division. A young prospect, who will arrive at Mourinho's court, more for the future than for the present: he has a five-year contract with Roma. Mile will have time to grow and learn from Rui Patricio. We've made some recent posts about Svilar, one of them is an in depth view how his Sorare prices have changed during the last few months. He is also featured in our popular top10 goalkeeper to buy right now.
