Daniele De Rossi has “fierce motivation” to carry on at Roma, said new director of sport Walter Sabatini.
There were reports the midfielder could be looking for a move away after the departure of the Sensi family and arrival of new Coach Luis Enrique.
However, he was spotted at the Trigoria training ground yesterday for a meeting with the new tactician and patron.
“He has to stay at Roma,” insisted Sabatini. “I met with De Rossi and saw in him fierce motivation to do well here.”
The Italy international is a homegrown Roma star and lifelong supporter of the club, but had been linked with Inter in recent weeks.
