The Greek defender signs a profitable contract with Napoli and leaves the Italian capital after many years. Manolas has been one of the best defenders Roma had.
The End! The movie is over and you have to change channel hoping to find another interesting series. The Roma fans have lost another top star. Over the years, the passionate supporters of the Lupi had to digest the departure of great talents and experienced champions. Salah, Alisson, Nainggolan, Strootman, Rudiger, Emerson, and Lamela and now even the Greek defender has been traded out for technical and financial reasons.
Kostas Manolas joins Napoli, a club who forms a spectacular defensive line with him and Koulibaly. But the former Roma defender will always have great memories of the Giallorossi. He made 206 appearances with the glorious club of the eternal city. He scored the most important goal of his career at the stadio Olimpico against Barcelona in that legendary Champions League night.
“I want to thank my coaches, teammates and all the fans that who supported me all these years. I spent 5 wonderful years. I’ve always given my best with love for this team. Ciao and Grazie Roma!!,” said Kostas Manolas through his official Instagram account.
Napoli made a great purchase. The Partenopei paid the release clause of the Greek defender, €36 million.
