It can be Alessandro Florenzi the heir of the band as captain worn before Francesco Totti then from Daniele De Rossi ? The team hierarchies say yes, as demonstrated in yesterday's match against Bologna, but outside the field and on the stands the rift between the fans and the full-back giallorosso is more than evident. Also yesterday at the time of replacement rained whistles by the Curva Sud then covered by timid applause from the other sectors of the Olimpico. A fracture between Florenzi and a part of the Romanist fans that began just over a year ago.
UNDER THE CURVE – From "Bello de nonna" to "Traitor" in a short time. The first cracks in the relationship between Vicecapitano and Curva date back to January 28, 2018 at the end of the match lost by Roma at the Olimpico against Sampdoria . Whistles of the South and the invitation to the players to come under the curve : message that Nainggolan was ready to collect if Florenzi – that in that match had also wrong a rigor – he had not blocked it, convincing him to go directly into the locker room. "The whole team would have gone under the curve to get the whistles we deserved, unfortunately there is a rule that prohibits it" the commentary by the full-back. An answer that did not convince the fans that on more than one occasion saw the players run under the sector to celebrate a goal or a victory.
THE CONTRACT – Within a few months the relationship went increasingly to to crack this time for the contractual events . The demands of the full-backs – right or wrong that they were – had made slip the renewal of the contract, while the entries of the interests of Juventus and Inter . The rift came on July 9th, during the friendly to Latina : the choirs departed from the guest sector showed all the bad mood of the Roman fans: «Take off the band , Florenzi thirty denari ". One wounded that has not gone to heal even after the long-awaited renewal of the contract to three million euros net per season: «In this story I realized that I can not pleasure to all – the words of the player after the signing -. But I will do what I can to bring the fans to my side. I know that not everyone is happy with this renewal ».
PERFORMANCES – The fullback now seems to live a new moment of poor popularity also due to the performances seasonal. Some matches insufficient – like team-mates -, many whistles left the South in the last period. The first in December, reading the formations in the match against Genoa (its worst game), then those against Milan who officially reopened the wounded of the previous months. Can Florenzi be the heir to the captain's band ? For Di Francesco yes . The technician considers it essential, the fans for now a little less .
