"The only problem is that so far we have not been able to reach an agreement over my contract extension, but these are things that happen. We will talk about it again in future and I hope to strike a deal because I want to remain with Roma."
This is not the first time that Mancini has had to pledge his future to the side, as a section of the fans turned on him after reports of negotiations with hated rivals Juventus last year.
"Rome is a city where I and my family are very happy and we want to stay, but in football everyone knows that problems can occur when a contract approaches its expiry. This is because both the club and the player try to defend their own interests."
