Napoli defender Manolas: De Rossi will do well for Boca Juniors

Napoli defender Kostas Manolas has paid tribute to Daniele de Rossi.

Both players left Roma this summer, with De Rossi due to sign with Boca Juniors.

De Rossi said, “He's a captain on and off the field. He gave me a lot and I love him.

"He's always given me advice, he's an excellent professional. It's a shame that he'll no longer be in Italian football.

“I wish him all the best. I'm sure he'll do well, he's a true champion and he deserves this chance."
