“It’s my second renewal with the club and I am incredibly pleased,” Fazio said. “From the very first day here I have felt that the club has confidence in me, something that is important to every player. I’ve sensed that belief from everyone who works at Trigoria – a place I want to stay at for the long-term.”

The Argentina international joined Roma in the summer of 2016. In the three seasons since, Il Comandante (‘The Pilot’) has made 135 appearances for the club – scoring 11 goals.

“Federico is a key player within our squad, and because of that we are delighted to be able to extend his contract,” said club sporting director Gianluca Petrachi. “We will be relying on his ability and his experience, qualities which will also be hugely important in the growth and development of our younger players. Federico will be a mentor for our defence and for our lads.”
