De Rossi's Roma revival continues with Salernitana win

Daniele De Rossi manager of AS Roma during the Serie A TIM match between US Salernitana and AS Roma - Serie A TIM at Stadio Arechi on January 29, 2024 in Salerno, Italy. 

Daniele De Rossi's dream start as Roma boss goes on, with his side earning a second successive win with a 2-1 triumph over Salernitana in Serie A.

De Rossi took over from previous coach Jose Mourinho on January 16, winning his first game in charge against Verona four days later.

His second victory came thanks to second-half goals from Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini, with the capital club rising three places to fifth on the table.

Dybala put the visitors ahead in the 51st minute from the penalty spot after Giulio Maggiore fouled Gianluca Mancini.

Pellegrini doubled Roma's lead 15 minutes later when he took advantage of poor defending. The Salernitana defence left him unmarked at the far post and he tapped home a cross from Rick Karsdorp.

Grigoris Kastanos pulled one back with a header four minutes later but Salernitana fell to a fourth consecutive league defeat.

The Salerno-based club have not beaten Roma since 1999. They remain anchored to the bottom of Serie A, five points behind second-to-last Empoli.
