AS Roma legend Danielle De Rossi to leave club after 18 seasons

AS Roma legend Daniele de Rossi will play his last game with his hometown club at the end of the month.

His illustrious career began 18 years ago as a 17-year-old.

Along with fellow one-club man Francesco Totti with whom he inherited the club’s captaincy in 2017, De Rossi recorded 615 appearances, 63 goals, and 3 trophies.

Roma management felt it was time to part ways despite the midfielder’s decision to go on:

“I feel I could still have a made an impact on this team, playing five, 10 games,” said De Rossi “[I could help] in the dressing room.

“But I agree the club has to make a decision or I could just get to the end of next season and decide I want to carry on. I'm a little disappointed we haven't spoken enough this year and I hope this [treatment] will improve in the future because I am a fan, but I understand it's the club's decision.”

The Italian World Cup winner wants to play in the Premier League next season, with offers potentially waiting.

“Today I received 500 text messages,” he said. “I’ll see if some offers arrive. I feel like a footballer and still want to play football.”
