Daniele De Rossi’s brilliant (& unconventional) sliding tackle swipe for Roma v Atalanta

Now this isn’t your regular sliding tackle from Roma defensive midfielder Daniele De Rossi.

Rudi Garcia’s side moved to within five points of Juventus on Saturday night, with a 3-1 win over Atalanta.

And, during the first half, De Rossi pulled off a sliding tackle of great beauty, whereby the Roma legend swiped the ball just as Atalanta’s Giuseppe De Luca thought he was away.

Quality stuff from De Rossi, totally justifying his tattoo…
