â€śI have always been a Roma fan,â€ť the homegrown hero told LaRoma24.it. â€śHowever things go, I want to thank all the fans who have been and continue to be close to me.
â€śI will explain the rest later on, when things are more definitive. I cannot say more now. Iâ€™m very sad to leave Roma.â€ť
Aquilani also had words for Francesco Totti, the captain who said he would miss him as a colleague and as a man.
â€śFrancesco is a great friend and a great player, while he too is a Romanista at heart. I thank him for his kind words.
â€śRoma will still remain strong and competitive, with or without Aquilani. Now I donâ€™t want to add anything more until Monday.â€ť
