Roma have officially renewed the contract of talented 18-year-old attacker Cristian Volpato until 2026.

Following the signature to his new contract, Volpato spoke to the club about his decision to extend his stay in the Italian capital.

“I am very happy to have signed with Roma, it is something very important for my career going forward. I am looking forward to living my future here in Rome and continuing to grow and work hard with the team,” the former Primavera player said.

“Despite having come all the way from Australia, Roma helped me to settle in very quickly, to grow and be ready for the first team.”

“Being able to work with a manager like Mourinho is a dream come true, so I try not to waste time and keep learning as much as possible from him.”

“Matic has helped me the most so far. He’s like an older brother to me. He gives me a lot of advice on and off the pitch.”

“My ambition? To be part of Roma’s starting eleven for as long as possible.”
