Roma, De Rossi eye renewal

RomaPress Staff

Il Tempo (Biafora) – If he feels good physically at the end of the season, then he will continue to play. Daniele De Rossi was clear before the first leg of the Champions League match against Porto and his idea for the future remains the same. Scoring the winning goal at Sampdoria reinforced the belief that becoming a manager can wait, despite having suffered the most serious injury of his career during the season. The injury to the cartilage in his knee caused him to miss 16 matches, but after therapy, the Giallorossi captain has returned to the pitch. To date, no meeting has been set with sporting director Ricky Massara to negotiate the renewal of his contract, but the intention of both De Rossi and the club is to discuss this at the end of the season. De Rossi’s main priority is getting Roma into the top four — there will be time to sit down and talk. The negotiation will likely be similar to what we saw two years ago, when his contract renewal was announced at the end of the season. His coaching career can wait — De Rossi aims at continuing on as a player.
