Veretout Urges Roma To Complete New Signings To Make The Team Stronger

Jordan Veretout agrees with José Mourinho and urges Roma to complete new signings to make the team stronger.

The Special One has often complained about Roma’s depth this season and after Sunday’s defeat against Venezia, he questioned the club’s transfer strategies.

This, despite Roma being the highest spender in Serie A over the summer.

Roma won six of the opening seven games of the season, but have only collected one victory in the last five Serie A games.

“We’ve had a drop after a good start, but the season is still long. The season’s target hasn’t changed, a Champions League spot is only three points away,” Veretout told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Mourinho is a winner, suitable for a big project like the one of Friedkins’ Roma. He gives you the motivation to always give the 200% and help the team. It’s up to us to find the same spirit we had at the beginning of the season,” the France international continued.

“There’s a lot of passion in Rome. If you win you are the best, if you lose it’s a big drama. But fans are our strength, they proved it to us in Venice, now we must repay them.”

The former Fiorentina midfielder insists the group has remained united despite their 6-1 loss against Bodo/Glimt two weeks ago, but claims Roma need new signings.

“This is an ambitious project that can’t be built from one day to another. It’s normal that it takes time and new signings to keep improving,” he said.

Veretout has been included in the France squad to replace the injured Paul Pogba.

The 28-year-old made his senior France debut this past September and has four caps to his name.

He has scored four goals and delivered three assists in 16 games at a club level this season and his contract with Roma expires in June 2024.
