The Argentine star spoke to the AS Roma official website about his career and his arrival in the eternal city.
He is finally fit and ready to impress everyone. Javier Pastore is now an added value to Fonseca’s roster after he experienced a very tough period.
In the last month, the Portuguese coach played him as a trequartista and he rediscovered a marvelous and talented player very efficient especially in the offensive phase.
“It was a great opportunity for me because I wanted to change club,” said Pastore when asked about Roma’s call. “I wanted to feel an important player again taking back the role I had lost at PSG…Roma was the best option and the city is great.”
Pastore picked up a few injuries during his first year close to the Colosseum. When you lose the confidence of a coach, it’s tough to make the difference and change your path.
“Physically I was never in good shape. I wasn’t able to train well…it wasn’t easy personally and professionally,” confirmed the Argentine midfielder.
Nowadays, the situation is different. Paulo Fonseca firmly believes in him and the player has rediscovered the joy of playing football. Pastore is a precious gem again.
