Across the Romaverse Podcast, #55: Mourinho’s Roma Off to Winning Start

It was a positive start to Roma’s 2021-22 campaign as the Giallorossi were led to an exciting 3-1 victory over Fiorentina by new signings Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurodov.

Romanisiti couldn’t have asked for a much better start to the league campaign, as the Giallorossi ran out to a 3-1 victory over the visiting Viola on Sunday. Mourinho’s men were led by new signing Tammy Abraham who showed just how influential he could be without even scoring a goal himself. Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jordan Veretout showed that their goalscoring shoes still have some magic in them.

It was an impressive performance for the new look Roma side even though Nicolo Zaniolo’s return was marred by a red card in the second half. Yet, despite some room for improvement, it was certainly something to build on as Roma hosts Trabzonspor on Thursday and heads to Salerno to face Salernitana on Sunday.

So, join us as Jimmy and I discuss Roma’s opening day victory against Fiorentina and touch on the Conference League and mercato at the very end of the episode. (No timestamps for this one as all but the last 10 minutes or so are devoted to the match.)
