This will be the captain's final season.
“You can bet on me, as my passion is without limits and I will always be here for Roma," he told Il Guerin Sportivo magazine.
“I made a dream come true, which was to have my whole career wearing the one jersey that I always loved. The passion and emotion that football gives me is wonderful.
“It was not a weight on my shoulders, even if I had to make some sacrifices. I always tried to live the profession with a certain detachment, maintaining the capacity to have fun on the field."
