“In Rome we treat people a little differently…”
In this tweet of AS Roma, the football-crazy nature of the people of Rome has become more evident. After the departure of Francesco Totti and Daniele di Rossi, the position of King of Rome had been vacant for a long time. No one could claim the throne of Stadio Olimpico as the new king.
Players like Mohamed Salah, Edik Dzeko, Razza Nainggolan, Niccolo Zaniolo or Pedro played at times, but no one could excite the people of Rome from the beginning. No one came to Rome with stardom, no title could win Roma.
But when was Roma’s main goal to win the title? The people of this city love the game of football more than the title. After sweating it out all week, Romanistas want to see their team win at the Stadio Olimpico on holiday. For whom the pride of beating city rivals Lazio is greater than winning Serie A. The one who gives the biggest star of the team the status of a Roman gladiator.
Those who can survive in love with Roma, despite his limitations in terms of playing, he is the most valuable player to Roma fans. He was held up on his head.
Paulo Dybala got the touch of the love of the people of Rome. After a long time, by bringing Dybala, who was signed to Roma in a free transfer from Juventus, Roma was able to get someone with such a star reputation. Roma officially introduced Dybala to the fans as their player yesterday. And the supporters of the team have welcomed Dybala like a king.
Thousands of people gathered outside the Palazzo della Civilta, one of Rome’s most historic buildings. The goal is to catch a glimpse of their new king. Banners, festoons, scarves, flags—they brought whatever they could to celebrate Diwali. Dybala sat outside the building and watched the Roma fans cheer for him with a smile on his face. The feeling of gratitude was falling right from the eyes.
Dibala cried. Bonucci came forward to calm him down
Did the Argentinian forward ever think that someone who lost his place to Dusan Vlahovic and left Juventus in disgrace could love him like this, accept him like this? If you don’t think so, seeing the action of Roma supporters yesterday, he is sure to have broken that idea. Roma is going to be the next club after Dybala won La Finalissima for Argentina a few days ago

Dybala also participated in the first press conference as a Roma player yesterday. Dybala knows that Roma is far behind in the race to win the league, so why don’t you expect to win the title?
“Roma won an important trophy last year, which gives us the motivation to do better in the future,” he said, expressing his determination to make Roma fans smile at the title like an ideal Roman gladiator. There are a number of clubs in a better position than us to win the league, but we have to focus on each match to achieve our goals.
