Roma coach Enrique tells De Rossi: Do not leave. I LOVE you!

AS Roma coach Luis Enrique insists he doesn't want to lose star midfielder Daniele de Rossi.

With less than a year to run on his Roma contract, De Rossi has been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid this summer.

Enrique said: "He is one of the most important players not only for Roma but also for Italy and around the world.

"He is important for me, is a key element. Already I knew him as a player and, now that I've met him in person I love him even more. It's nice to see his will to win but also how he listens, as he dedicates himself with humility and willingness to make himself available to the team.

"I hope he feels involved in this project."
