'Roma curious about new owner'

Simone Perrotta admits that Roma's players are curious to find out what new owner Thomas Di Benedetto has in store for the club.

Last week Di Benedetto flew to the Italian capital and reached a preliminary agreement to purchase the club for £67.7m.

"In this moment of transition regarding the club's ownership there is curiosity on everyone's behalf to see what kind of team will be built," Perrotta said.

"Many are being written about in the papers.

"Right now I would like to remember all the work done and all the victories conquered by the Sensi family. They have made investments to win the Scudetto and to keep the club at the top despite the financial problems that they've had.

"Many teams who've had a great past have often been re-dimensioned and find themselves fighting against relegation, but since I've been here this has always been a top team, both in Italy and in Europe," he concluded.
