Former Roma midfielder and the current head of the Polish FA, Zbignew Boniek, appeared on Rome-based radio station Rete Sport and discussed the situation of Napoli’s Arek Milik.
Milik was a step away from joining Roma three weeks ago and even underwent medical examinations for the club. However, the deal ultimately fell through because of problems between Milik and the Partenopei, who plan to keep the striker in the stands after they excluded him from their official Serie A roster.
“Arek is doing well physically, I see him in training and he is an exceptional guy. It is true he suffered two serious injuries but he is back at the top,” said Boniek.
“I’m sorry this situation has arisen with Napoli, especially after they waited for him to return from his injuries.”
“I have no idea what his future holds. I talked to him in the summer and he was happy about the idea of joining Roma. He even phoned me to ask for advice and I told him that I was glad that he was joining a serious club.”
“I hoped he would go to Rome to play alongside Dzeko because he is used to playing with Lewandowski. A great team needs two important strikers,” he concluded.
