'I'm not the finished product'

Fiorentina defender Facundo Roncaglia has insisted that he is 'not the finished product' despite having a remarkable debut season in Serie A.

The Argentine centre-back signed from Boca Juniors last summer and has made 23 appearances for the Viola so far this term.

But the 26-year-old has claimed that there is still more to come from him.

“I certainly do not see myself as an idol,” he told Lega Calcio's official website. “I know that the fans love me, but I am not the finished product.

“I need to reach a higher level to be compared with the top players.

“The way to improve is to keep working hard and to have the drive to improve.

“I think I have matured as a player and as a person [since arriving in Italy], and maybe that's reflected with my performances.

“My teammates have made me feel right at home. We have a strong team spirit here and we really work for each other.”
