Roma turn down Borja Mayoral’s Olympics call-up

Andy Mattioli

As reported in Spanish news outlet Marca, Borja Mayoral will not be leaving to Japan anytime soon. Although Louis de la Fuente, Spain’s Olympic coach, hoped to count on the 24-year-old striker to lead his attack in Tokyo for the summer Olympics, Roma made it clear that they want to keep Mayoral in the capital for the duration of pre-season.

The striker, on loan from Real Madrid, had an outstanding season as back-up to Edin Dzeko: 17 goals and 4 assists across all competitions. It will be important both for Roma and the player to keep the same consistency and quality of performances going into the new season.
