MILAN - Daniele De Rossi fired home just
before the break to give Vincenzo Montella a winning start as AS
Roma coach with a 1-0 Serie A victory at Bologna on Wednesday.
Former Roma youth-team coach and striker Montella has taken
over until the end of the season after Claudio Ranieri's
resignation on Sunday following four straight defeats.
De Rossi stopped the rot and sent Roma up to sixth after
Mirko Vucinic picked up a loose ball in the area and played it
back for the Italy midfielder to score.
Montella left former strike partner Francesco Totti on the
bench but the club captain, who had a strained relationship with
Ranieri because of a number of substitute appearances, came on
in the second half.
The game, originally postponed after 16 minutes last month
because of snow, kicked off with 16 minutes already on the clock
as is the tradition in Italy.
