Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes discussed his decision to return to the capital club on a long-term deal in the summer.

While presenting a new Rolex model with SMW, Paredes recounted the emotional return to the club that discovered him in the first place in 2015, bringing him to one of Europe’s top flights.

“I’m happy to be back in Rome. Since I left I wanted to return not only as a footballer, but also to live there with my family once I retired.” It’s exciting for me and my family to be here.”

“I came back to win with this shirt. It would be a dream to win trophies here because of how important it is for fans here. They live and breathe football, it would be a great pleasure to win.”

“With Roma I want to win as much as possible and with the national team it is important to continue winning. In the last year and a half we have won everything because we have developed a winning mentality and we will continue to fight to win.”
