Liverpool signing Aquilani says goodbye to Roma fans

New Liverpool signing Alberto Aquilani has said his goodbyes to hometown club Roma.

"I have always been a Roma fan," the homegrown hero told LaRoma24.it. "However things go, I want to thank all the fans who have been and continue to be close to me.

"I will explain the rest later on, when things are more definitive. I cannot say more now. I'm very sad to leave Roma."

Aquilani also had words for Francesco Totti, the captain who said he would miss him as a colleague and as a man.

"Francesco is a great friend and a great player, while he too is a Romanista at heart. I thank him for his kind words.

"Roma will still remain strong and competitive, with or without Aquilani. Now I don't want to add anything more until Monday."
