Ex-Roma defender and current Boca Juniors sporting director Nicolas Burdisso spoke to Fox Sports today about the links to Daniele De Rossi. These are his words:
“The fact that many players want to come here fills me with pride. There are many important players who would like to play for Boca Juniors, but desires are one thing and reality is another. The situation of De Rossi is different. He’s a friend, I talk to him every day. He has always shown a willingness to come here. I spoke to him a few days ago and then I left him alone for his farewell match. I told him that I would like to have him here with us and we will come back to talk to him in the next few days”.
