Francesco Totti sent a birthday message to Daniele De Rossi, which included the phrase “stay at Roma and we’ll win something great together.”
Today is De Rossi’s 30th birthday and Roma Channel aired several video messages from his teammates.
They included Totti, who spoke in Roman dialect to his fellow native of the city.
“Ciao Dani, best wishes for turning 30, though you’re getting old now and practically finished!
“It’s better if you give us the present, so stay here at Roma and at least we’ll win something great together. Ciao bello!”
De Rossi has been linked with the likes of PSG, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Fiorentina.
