Sabatini insists Borriello staying with Roma

AS Roma chief Walter Sabatini says striker Marco Borriello will be staying with the capital club.

The transfer guru once again ruled out David Pizarro's move to Napoli, but had been far more open to losing the ex-Milan striker.

"Perhaps some misunderstanding arose around Marco because someone wanted to liberally interpret my words," Sabatini told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"I consider Borriello to be one of the best strikers in Italy and I'm not the only one who says that. I only said he was a 'problem for Roma' because he is a great player and nobody can guarantee anyone a regular spot in this team.

"Borriello is an excellent forward and we are keeping a tight hold of him, then we'll see what happens when we meet and discuss the situation. That will be over the next few days.

"Have Napoli asked me for Borriello? They could consider it, but I wouldn't recommend they do, because he is a Roma player and will remain a Roma player."
