Former Roma star Zibi Boniek has heaped praise on the impact of coach Daniele de Rossi.
De Rossi replaced Jos Mourinho in January.

“I think De Rossi arrived at the right time, because the Mourinho era had to be closed, the moment had come to terminate that relationship,” Polish FA president Boniek told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I am convinced that Daniele is intelligent, talented, motivated and this is a wonderful story for Roma. He was their player, captain and now coach.

“All it took was to adjust the tactics a little and the rapport with the players and immediately important results arrived. Now we have to see how the story ends, I personally hope he becomes like the Ferguson of Roma and remain for many years.”
