Did you Know?

Associazione Sportiva Roma was rejuvenated in Carlo Mazzone’s second season as coach, much due to Abel Balbo being the goalscorer it had lacked for the previous years. The summer signings of 1994 helped, with internationally recognized players Jonas Thern and Daniel Fonseca joining the club from rivals Napoli. Also Francesco Moriero became a household player since he proved his worth in the club, recently coming from Cagliari. Cervone started the season as team second goalkeeper behind Fabrizio Lorieri but manager Carlo Mazzone shortly changed his mind and made Cervone becoming the first goalkeeper.
