AS Roma midfielder Simone Perrota has announced his retirement.
The midfielder will turn 36 in September and feels it is time to call it a day.
â€śI definitely wonâ€™t stay on at Roma as a player,â€ť he told Teleradiostereo.
â€śI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll continue playing at all, in fact, as Iâ€™d prefer to end my career as an ex-Roma player rather than the ex of another club. I wanted to finish my playing days with this jersey and I feel itâ€™s the right thing to do.
â€śIt is possible my story with Roma could continue in a different way. It is only right their project continue moving forward with the players they consider to be valid.â€ť
