Roma ace De Rossi confirms he is not interested in Man City

AS Roma star Daniele De Rossi has officially confirmed that he is not about to leave the club.

The 29-year old midfielder has been targeted by English champions Manchester City recently but today made it clear that he has no intentions of departing the Stadio Olimpico.

"People have written all sorts of things, about me, about [City manager Roberto] Mancini. Some of it makes me laugh. Some of it makes me angry," the £31million City target told reporters.

"I can tell you the truth. I came to do a classic press conference before the season. I wanted to make a clarification.

"What I can promise everyone is that the day I want to leave Roma - whether to win CL or make more money - I will say so in public.

"This is a normal press conference for me, not the announcement of the Third World War. For me it's important to say my piece. I am here at Roma, I'm happy and never asked to leave.

"I don't know if club still want to sell me. Guessing they count on me since they gave me huge contract in February. Ask them."
