Having previously represented the club in the UEFA Youth League, he was handed his senior debut at the age of 18 by manager Rudi Garcia on 22 March 2015, coming on as a second-half substitute for Salih Uçan in a 1–0 Serie A win over Cesena.

This shirt was issued for Lorenzo Pellegrini for the Serie A game between Roma and Atalanta which took place in Roma, “Stadio Olimpico”, on September 25th 2019. Atalanta defeated Roma 2-0. This shirt has been used by the team in this game only. It is a special shirt with special name and numbering on the back, as part of the club’s partnership with cult lifestyle brand Tokidoki. The recently-announced partnership between AS Roma and Tokidoki began with Tokidoki founder Simone Legno redesigning the club’s mascot, Romolo. Players played instead the game against Atalanta with Tokidoki-themed elements on their numbers and name sets. Together with these special numbering and lettering on shirts, the club also announced that, at the same time, an initial capsule collection of Roma x Tokidoki products was released – including a 3D Romolo toy, a selection of clothing and some limited edition New Era caps.

Pellegrini has represented Italy at various youth levels. He made his debut for the U19 side against Germany in March 2014. He then enjoyed a brief spell with the U20’s in 2015 before making his U21 debut against France on 2 June the following year. He made his first appearance for the senior side in an 8–0 victory over San Marino in an unofficial friendly match on 31 May 2017, coming on as a half time substitute for Daniele Baselli. His official debut followed on 11 June when he appeared in Italy’s 5–0 home win over Liechtenstein in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Did you Know?

Regarded as a promising young player, from a tactical standpoint, Pellegrini’s natural role is that of a central midfielder, who can be deployed in any position in a three-man midfield, although he is also capable of playing as an attacking midfielder and as a defensive midfielder. A tall, physically strong, yet agile, dynamic, energetic, and hard-working midfielder, his main characteristics are his stamina, ball control, movement, flair, and ability to make attacking runs into the penalty area from behind, as well as his eye for goal, and his striking ability from distance with either foot, despite being naturally right-footed. A former central defender in his youth, he is also an effective ball-winner, which enables him to break down possession, while his vision and technical skills allow him subsequently to carry or distribute the ball and provide assists for his teammates. His wide range of skills thus enable him to contribute at both ends of the pitch, and make him effective in linking both the defensive and offensive aspects of the game in a box-to-box role.
