“We cannot be afraid of being ambitious. I am here to crown the main dream of our fans, the Scudetto. However, I am not only thinking about winning a title. Roma needs to compete for the trophy every season.

We decided to put a Roma soul on the team. Eusebio Di Francesco had already played here. Our team manager Morgan De Sanctis too. Then there’s Francesco Totti as a director, he is Roma!

When I told Totti that it was the moment to retire my legs were shaking. But I think he has appreciated that I was looking him in his eyes. It was important to start a professional project between us.”
