Zaniolo Wants to Emulate De Rossi

The young midfielder is very happy at Roma. He landed in the Italian capital to learn from a master, Daniele De Rossi.

After the Champions League convincing victory and the six points collected in the last two Serie A matches, Nicolò Zaniolo and the Lupi are getting ready to face Empoli.

The Italian midfielder joined the giallorossi last summer but Eusebio Di Francesco already gave him the opportunity to play.

I’m honored to wear this jersey. I’m training hard every day to show my qualities to the coach,” said Zaniolo to Dazn. “Fortunately, I had a few chances but the most important thing is to go ahead on this path.”

When Roma called me I didn’t have hesitations. I wanted to confront great champions. The group welcomed me very well, moreover the captain. De Rossi gave me many suggestions and I’m trying to learn from him. I want to become like him. Daniele is a role model on and off the field. He has won everything even the World Cup,” said the talented midfielder.

Zaniolo was supported by Totti ahead of the Champions League match against Viktoria Plzen. “He has encouraged me. It was a great honor to talk with Francesco and Daniele. That was my first match among professional players.”
