The 26-year old centre-back has been one of Roma’s most consistent performers over the course of the campaign, proving to be a reliable figure in the Italians’ defence. Manolas managed to finish the season on a high too, practically scoring the winning goal in a 1:0 triumph over Sassuolo. In the dying seconds of the first half, Manolas powered to the byline, thrashed the ball across goal, and Sassuolo stopper Gianluca Pegolo deflected it into his own net. It proved to be the only goal of the match, with Roma holding on to win 1:0. Manolas spent the entire 90 minutes on the pitch.
Manolas made 29 appearances in the 2017/2018 Serie A season, scoring two goals along the way. The Greek also netted a historic winning goal against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
AS Roma finished in third place of Serie A with 77 points from 38 matches.
