It’s always nice to see a player come back from having been written off, especially when that writing off came as quickly as it did for Rasmus Kristensen at AS Roma.

Sent to the Serie A side for the season after Leeds United were relegated from the Premier League, things went wrong very quickly for the right sided player.

Soon after arriving at Roma, Kristensen was left out of the club’s UEFA squad and therefore unable to play in Europe. Then the Italian media started taking aim over the little use and positive contribution he was having since his arrival from Leeds United.

At the beginning of November he was labelled a ‘flop’ who hadn’t yet managed to adapt to Roma or Italian football. Later that same month it was declared he was ‘not up to par’ and wasn’t able to help Jose Mourinho through an injury crisis.

Well, Sunday was a very good day for Rasmus.

In 45 minutes of action he scored a goal and contributed an assist, being a big part of Roma’s 2-1 victory over Sassuolo.

That’s obviously seeing him receive lots of praise from the media around the Rome club, and will hopefully be a confidence boost after a difficult time.

Such a positive new slant can only be good for Leeds United and the player’s future prospects.
