Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici spoke today to Radio Radio about the arrival of Daniele De Rossi. These are his words:
Why did you choose to bring De Rossi to Boca?
For two reasons: the first being we knew he’s always been a supporter of Boca Juniors. The other is the presence of Nico Burdisso, who’s currently our sporting director and his ex-teammate. De Rossi brings us great experience.
Did Roma ask for Almendra?
I heard the supporting director spoke with Burdisso for Almendra, but an official request did not arrive.
How much will the other midfielders at Boca grow with De Rossi’s presence?
I think he will be a great help for the growth of these youngsters: he’s a national team player.
Is it true that De Rossi can be freed from the contract if he accepts a call from the Italian national team?
The contract is until 30 June of next year.
