Facundo Roncaglia


Recommended Posts

Purely speclutive, not a single rumour at this point. Personally i think he is just what the defense need.

With John Terry on the wane, Branislav Ivanovic better as a right back and Gary Cahill no better than a (good) squad player, a long term defensive partner to David Luiz is needed in the summer.

Roncaglia was signed by Italian club Fiorentina last summer and has helped them climb to 4th place (they finished 13th last season).

After losing Nastastic to Manchester City, Vincenzo Montella unearthed another gem in this guy.

At 26 is approaching the peak of his powers, just the kind of signing we need this summer.

Also to add he is a right sided CB so that means Luiz can carry on playing on his preferred left side.

I heard about him but never realy watched him...looks like good pick but he might be a year too old. I mean, there are good defenders in smaller clubs, but they never achive same in bigger. At 26, he should be very good to just improve his defending with age, but this guy at 26 might lack some ambition.

To realy solve our defensive problems imediately next year we need experienced top defender ala Thiago Silva. Sure not a chance of getting him but the point is clear. Young defenders will be too unexperienced and all, while decent older might show good games but will never be top class.

As again, i hardly know this guy and might be good shout.
