The 22 year-old has impressed as Monza seek a comfortable mid-table finish this Serie A season.
“This was a very positive year for me, I didn't expect it. I was hoping to play and gain some experience, it went beyond my expectations," said Rovella to DZN.
“Palladino was very important to me, almost decisive. [Former Monza manager] Stroppa called me to join. But when Palladino arrived, he immediately put his trust in me, gave me lots of advice and also helped me off the pitch. Having only recently retired, he still remembers the dynamics."
On the presence of Adriano Galliani at Monza, Rovella also said: “It was an honour, you immediately understand the qualities of the person. He's incredible.
“The first time I was at Continassa, I was with (Nicolo) Fagioli. I get a call from an unknown number and I didn't answer. Then he writes me a message and tells me that it was Galliani and if I could call him back as soon as I could. So I immediately called back.
“He complimented me and I immediately felt appreciated by a master of Italian football."
