After a long negotiation, the French forward Gregoire Defrel joined AS Roma and released his first interview at the official TV channel of the Giallorossi, Roma TV.
“This is a very strong group and I am proud to be part of this team. It means a lot to me. I will give my best for the team.
Roma approached my agent in January but the deal fell through and I stayed at Sassuolo for another six months. i was disappointed at that time because Roma is one of the best teams in Italy and a huge opportunity for me.
Di Francesco always played me as the central striker even if sometimes I played as a winger as well. I still have a lot to learn but I feel like a centre forward.”
“Yes, we’ve spoken a lot with Lorenzo Pellegrini. He was calling me to see if there was any news.
I’m absolutely excited to play in the Champions League. I’ll do everything I can to be ready for it – I can’t wait to get started!”
