They are the biggest team from the capital city Rome and have spent all but one year in the top flight of Italian football since their inception. Roma was initially founded to rival the Northern Italian clubs which totally dominant Italian football.

Roma have won the Italian league 3 times, most recently in 2000-2001, 9 Coppa Italia’s and 2 Supercoppa Italiana titles.

On August 6th 2020, Roma was successfully taken over by the Friedkin group who have promised to help improve Roma fight for titles once again.

Board Requirements

Additionally, you will be required to sign young players for the future and to develop young players using the club’s youth system.

Roma have excellent training facilities and a very good youth system that will churn out the occasional potential star player. You can rely on this to make the club achieve their targets and to rebuild a strong squad with the club.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Roma have a set of players that suit a vertical tiki taka style of play or a fluid counter attack style of play. You can choose whichever you feel best works for you.

A 4-2-3-1 is the best suited formation for Roma considering the strengths of their current squad of players. However, you can also play a 4-3-3 if the situation demands so.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows,
 
FM21 AS Roma Tactics


Pau Lopez as a sweeper keeper.

Chris Smalling & Gianluca Mancini as your 2 centre backs both are comfortable on the ball and can play as ball playing defenders.

Leonardo Spinazzola & Rick Karsdorp as the 2 full backs with the former playing as a wing back with high crossing instructions. You can also instruct him to get further forward and join in on attacks.

Jordan Veretout & Bryan Cristante as the 2 central midfielders. Cristante playing the role of a defensive playmaker, Veretout in a box to box role.

Lorenzo Pellegrini to be played as an attacking midfielder in a No10 role.

Pedro & Nicolo Zaniolo as the 2 wingers with Pedro playing as an inside forward and Zaniolo as an inverted winger.

Edin Dzeko as the lone forward in a deep lying forward role.

Key Players


1. Edin Dzeko


FM21 Edin Dzeko

Despite being 34, Dzeko is one of Roma’s best players and has been absolutely sensational going forward. The experienced Bosnian despite not being fast is extremely good in the air and can thrive off crosses.

2. Nicolo Zaniolo


FM21 Nicolo Zaniolo

Despite being just 21, Zaniolo is one of the best players in the Roma side and will develop into one of the best wingers in Italy. He is a very good dribbler and is absolutely lethal in front of goal when presented with chances.

3. Lorenzo Pellegrini


FM21 Lorenzo Pellegrini

Another young Italian superstar in the making, Pellegrini is already an established International and is one of the better players in the Roma side. He is a team player and provides excellent set piece delivery for the taller players to attack.

4. Jordan Veretout


FM21 Jordan Veretout

Veretout is an important cog in the Roma midfield. He is versatile and can chip in with key goals especially in important games.


Weaknesses


1. The quality of backups in the squad may not be up to quality and could prove fatal if your squad is affected by injuries.

2. You run the risk of some talents being poached by other clubs especially in search of higher wages.

3. Some key players are ageing and replacements may not be very easy to find.

Youth Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are,

1. Ibanez


FM21 Ibanez

The 21 year old Brazilian defender is on loan from Atalanta and will be joining Roma on a permanent transfer in 2021. He is already good enough to start games for the club and will only improve in the future.

2. Marash Kumbulla


FM21 Marash Kumbulla

Another player on loan who will join permanently in 2021, Kumbulla was highly sought after by several clubs across Europe. He is good enough to already be starting games for Roma and will become one of the best defenders in the game.

3. Alessio Riccardi


FM21 Alessio Riccardi

The versatile central midfielder can easily become one of the mainstays for Roma in the future and will develop into a very useful squad player.

Summary

  
To Summarize, despite being the dominant club from the capital city, Roma have always been in the shadow of the Italian giant clubs. Can you as a manager take over and dethrone the usual suspects making Roma the biggest club in Italy?
