Phillippe Mexes: “I wanted to finish my career at Roma.”

Former Roma defender Phillippe Mexes sounded bitter over the fact that he wasn’t able to complete his career with the Giallorossi.

In a recent interview with Leggo, Mexes discussed his decision to move away from the capital club in 2011 after years of loyal service.

“I miss the passion of the people, especially the Roma supporters. Fans are the healthy part of this sport. But I don’t miss the environment at all. I left overnight precisely because I was fed up with some dynamics, even with my teammates.”

“The youngsters didn’t want to train, they only think about money. Now I follow him from the sofa and enjoy my family.”

“Totti who taught me a lot, is the only ex-teammate that I’m still in touch with. And Spalletti who remains one of the best technicians in the world. Without him I would not have had this career, he achieved a feat in Naples.”

“I remember our magical nights with Lyon and Real, we had fun in Europe even though we weren’t the strongest. I felt sorry I didn’t finish my career there, but the arrival of the new ownership changed many things. Then I saw how they treated Totti and De Rossi maybe it was better that way.”
