Roma have officially announced the signing of defender Evan Ndicka until 2028.
Here are Evan’s first words as a Roma player:
“The way that the project was explained to me along with this club’s history and prestige made me want to come to Rome, which is a fantastic city that loves and lives for football. I can’t wait to take to the Olimpico pitch in front of my new supporters and make my contribution towards achieving our objectives.”
Born in Paris to a Cameroonian father and Ivorian father, Ndicka came through the youth ranks at Auxerre before moving to Eintracht Frankfurt in 2018. During his time in Germany, Evan won the Europa League in 2022 and made a total of 134 Bundesliga appearances, during which he notched ten goals.
Having played for France at youth level, Evan recently decided to represent the Cote d’Ivoire at senior international level.
The club’s General Manager, Football, Tiago Pinto, reacted to the new signing:
“Despite his young age, Evan is already a mature player with a wealth of experience from one of the most prestigious leagues and he also played a key role in his previous club’s European success. He was a particularly sought-after player on the international stage, so we’re thrilled that he has chosen Roma.”
Ndicka has opted to wear the number 5 jersey.
