Roma turn down Borja Mayoral’s Olympics call-up


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.
