Marash Kumbulla excited with Roma move

Marash Kumbulla is delighted with his move to Roma.

The Verona defender signed for the Giallorosso last week on an initial loan.

“When I first became aware about the opportunity to play for Roma, it didn't take long for me to decide," Kumbulla told The Guardian newspaper.

“I knew immediately that it was the right club for me. They showed me the project, the staff and I spoke to the coach. The Roma fans, stadium and history of this great club are amazing, and it was very easy to choose it. Roma, for me, is the ideal place to continue my career."

The highlight of his debut Serie A season was Verona's victory over Juventus at the Stadio Bentegodi in February.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been a very tough opponent, but I've tried to limit him with my characteristics and to anticipate him. Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku are very difficult to face, the first for his speed and the second for his strength. “I have taken advantage of playing against the best players in Italy at such a young age. It's made me grow up faster.

“The victory against Juventus is unforgettable because it was on my birthday. I couldn't have asked for a better present."
