Balzaretti: “Hope keeps me alive!”

AS Roma’s fullback Federico Balzaretti held the press conference to speak about his physical problem that since long time is keeping him far away from the pitch. Below his most important thoughts:

“I had this problem about ten months ago, I had this pain in the pubic area and because I never had a similar problem I thought it was a minor thing. For this reason I played the folowing match against Sassuolo but after that one I did not have the strength to walk. I thought it was something not really important so we treated it like a groin injury. However, I underwent other medical tests and we discovered a problem to the pubic synthesis. Basically, where there should be cartilage that no longer exists.”

There is hope in my heart, however, the medical test that I underwent Wednesday was particularly traumatic. After all this and with workloads particularly high, the situation has worsened. I have so much hope, we are doing another treatment and I hope that will help me to continue my dream of playing football. Hope keeps me alive!”

I spoke with the president. The club can do whatever they want. The main point of the situation are the feelings of a person. The club have always been close to me. If I can say one thing, I believe that the club did not want to do anything because they are a family and because they know that I’m doing everything is possible to heal. Perhaps this is the difference with other clubs and the reason why many want to come here. That said, I will do anything they will ask me to do.”
