Watch: Aleksandar Kolarov scored a cheeky winning free-kick on his Roma debut

The 31-year-old switched to Serie A following seven years at Man City, scoring a brilliant free-kick on his Roma debut today.

ALEKSANDAR KOLAROV HAS built up a reputation for having a powerful and at times devastating left foot throughout his 13 year career in football.

Moreover the former Manchester City left-back has been known to enjoy a free-kick, with Sunday evening seeing the 31-year-old Serbian execute another expert set-piece to add to his collection.

25 yards from goal and with half an hour on the clock the defender planted an eerily calm effort under the wall of opponents Atalanta at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

It was inspired and ultimately transpired to be the winner as Eusebio Di Francesco recorded his first Serie A win since taking charge at the Stadio Olimpico.

Kolarov was making his debut during the 1-0 win following a summer switch to Serie A after seven seasons at the Etihad.

Kolarov joined the side in July for a transfer fee of €5 million on a three year deal, winning two Premier League titles and an FA Cup at City.

He returns to Italy where he won the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana during three seasons at Lazio from 2007 until 2010.
