Memphis Depay and Kevin Strootman had to overcome a lot - mentor

Memphis Depay has spoken about the challenges he faces while at Manchester United.

They were the shining stars of the Sparta Rotterdam academy, yet the explosive temperaments of Memphis Depay and Kevin Strootman left the coach charged with honing their youthful talents questioning whether the duo would ever fulfil their potential.

Richard Grootscholten was a pivotal figure in Sparta's youth-team setup during the period when two of the best young players Dutch football has produced in recent years were learning the game.

Grootscholten, who has worked alongside Manchester United...

Roma win at Palermo to give Rudi Garcia some breathing space

Roma won 4-2 at Palermo on Sunday to ease the pressure on Rudi Garcia

By the time Salih Ucan fed Gervinho on the edge of area in injury time on Sunday afternoon, Roma had seemingly put the game beyond Palermo once, only to have their 3-0 lead pegged back to 3-2 with a only a few minutes left.

Miralem Pjanic, Alessandro Florenzi and Gervinho had put Roma three up at half-time, but two headed goals from Alberto Gilardino and Giancarlo Gonzalez had put the result back in question. Roma fans were waiting for the inevitable equaliser.

Instead, Gervinho took the pass and...

Rudi Garcia on borrowed time at Roma

Manager Rudi Garcia may not be at Roma come Christmas.

The last few weeks have not been easy for Rudi Garcia.

The Frenchman's coaching capabilities are being questioned after a rocky September that has seen his Roma side win only two of the six games they played in the league and Europe last month and be hit with a raft of injuries to key players like Edin Dzeko, Seydou Keita and Francesco Totti.

Now it looks like he may be on the brink of the sack only six games into the league season, as fan dissatisfaction grows and the local media sharpens its pens.

Roma's fightback too little too late in an costly UCL defeat at BATE Borisov

BATE Borisov were in strong form at home, defeating AS Roma in their UEFA Champions League group stage match by a score of 3-2.

It's not often that after going 3-0 down just half an hour into a game, you come out at the end feeling unfortunate not to have got something out of it, especially in the Champions League. But that what's happened tonight in Borisov.

After a comical opening half in which Roma conceded two of the most embarrassing goals you'll ever see within 12 minutes of the kick off, Rudi Garcia's side dusted themselves down and dragged themselves back into the game. With eight minutes left, they got back to...

AS Roma can show Champions League credentials with win at BATE Borisov

Rudi Garcia faces a slew of injuries ahead of a potentially tricky trip to BATE Borisov. Who will play up front?

Roma could hardly have started their Champions League campaign any better. Charged with righting the wrongs of last season's humiliating group stage exit (which included two poundings from Bayern Munich), they put in a dogged, disciplined display against Barcelona at a packed Stadio Olimpico and grabbed a precious 1-1 draw thanks to Alessandro Florenzi's goal, an astonishing 55-metre strike.

Roma showed in the glare of the world's cameras that they could compete with the best on the biggest stage....

Roma's hammering of Carpi eases pressure on Rudi Garcia

The ESPN FC crew respond to your Twitter questions about which teams are most likely to win their respective leagues.

Roma needed a big win against Carpi on Saturday night to get the critics off their backs, and they came through by smashing their lowly opponents 5-1. The sharks had been circling around coach Rudi Garcia following his side's 2-2 draw with Sassuolo last week and the unfortunate 2-1 defeat at Sampdoria on Wednesday night, but Saturday's win will keep them at bay for a few days.

However, despite the convincing scoreline, things didn't go entirely according to plan at the Stadio Olimpico. Garcia...
