Every footballer’s dream is to play the Champions League and Cengiz Under is very happy to show his qualities in the most prestigious international competition for clubs. When Roma decided to sign him, the Turkish winger was just a possible good prospect. Nowadays, he is a reality and shining in the eternal city.
“I couldn’t sleep when my agent called him to tell me that I had to pack my bag to move from Instambul to Rome. Although I was extremely nervous, I had been able to turn one of my biggest dreams into reality. I’m playing for one of the best European clubs,” said the Roma prodigy Cengiz Under to UEFA.com.
The first time he met Francesco Totti is an unforgettable moment for Under. “I was going to the first training session and Monchi told me to go to the locker rooms. I felt very nervous because Totti was there waiting for me. He is every footballer’s idol, including mine. I took a picture with him and posted it when I got back home.”
