Another day, another important renewal in the home of Roma. The Giallorossi announced this afternoon the contract renewal of Cengiz Ünder, who arrived at the club in July 2017. Here is the full announcement:
AS Roma are delighted to confirm that forward Cengiz Under has signed a long-term contract extension with the club. The Turkey international, 22, has put pen-to-paper on a new four-year deal with the club, that runs until 30 June 2023. Cengiz joined Roma in the summer of 2017, and has since gone on to make 65 appearances in all competitions – scoring 14 goals.
“I arrived in Rome two years ago and since then, day after day, I’ve felt more in love with this city, this club and these fans,” Cengiz said. “This is a very happy moment for me. I want to thank the club for allowing me to realise my wish to continue playing for Roma.”
Cengiz’s renewal follows in the footsteps of the announcement that teammate Nicolo Zaniolo has committed his future to the Giallorossi.
“We really wanted to complete this renewal, because we all see the talent Cengiz has,” club sporting director Gianluca Petrachi said. “We are certain that over the coming years he will make a huge contribution to the quality of the team, realising his great potential here in Rome – the perfect place for him to continue to improve.”
