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."
