Roma coach Paulo Fonseca tried to ignore questions over the transfer of Edin Dzeko to Juventus after opting for a place on the bench against Verona for his striker on Saturday night (0-0).

“We can’t say what would have happened if Dzeko had played,” the coach told DAZN.

Inevitably, Fonseca was asked again about Dzeko’s situation, as leaving him on the bench was tacit confirmation that he was preparing to join another club.

“It was a very difficult week for Dzeko. I made this decision to protect him”, he said.

Luckily, Roma’s next game will be against Juventus (Sunday) so will Dzeko play and for whom? “We’ll see!” Fonseca replied.
