Former Roma captain Alessandro Florenzi, who spent this past season at Milan on loan, discussed his campaign while on national team duty with Italy.
The 31 year-old has spent the previous two and a half years away from the Italian capital, experiencing loan spells at Valencia and PSG before joining the Rossoneri last summer and capturing his first league title as a professional.
“Throughout my time at Milan, I noticed many similarities to Italy’s Euro 2020 champion squad,” he said during the Azzurri’s training session.
“It’s difficult to explain but there was a certain feeling within the team at Milan, my teammates didn’t understand what I meant but you could feel it. I was glad I ended up being right.”
As for his former employers Roma, Florenzi conceded he’s disappointed in not having won a trophy during his time with the club.
“I really would’ve liked to have been there to celebrate the Conference League victory, but it’s not as if I would’ve been able to do it incognito. I’m just sorry I wasn’t able to win something with Roma.”
