Is he starting every game at Roma? Haven't been keeping up this year.
No, he's not starting all that often however he's still getting minutes. He's a bit unfortunate that the new manager Andreazzoli prefers a 3-4-1-2 formation so that's one less MF position where he could play.
Andreazzoli has moved Pjanic back to a deep lying playmaker position with De Rossi at holding mid flanked by 2 wingbacks. Michael has only started when one of those two weren't available or has come on for Pjanic to shore up the defense with a lead recently.
Concerning the comments about him being world class
: it depends on what one means by world class:
He's not world class in terms of being one of the top 20 at his position but he is an integral part of a club that's among the top 20 most talented in the world and that's not too shabby.
