Heinze excited about Roma switch

Gabriel Heinze is excited about his Bosman move to AS Roma.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid defender was a free agent after terminating his contract with Olympique Marseille.

"It's a great honour to wear the Roma jersey and compete in Serie A, one of the most important Leagues in the world," said Heinze, 33.

"I was fortunate enough to represent big clubs in my career. Now this challenge has arrived and it was easy to accept. Nobody needed to convince me, as I really wanted this move.

"I spoke to the Coach and the directors, so I liked their plans immediately. There is focus on youth here, but there is also a balanced mix with experience.

"The likes of Bojan Krkic and Erik Lamela are hungry and want to write history with this great club. For the experienced figures like me, it is our duty to set an example for them."
