De Rossi: 'You'll know when...'

Daniele De Rossi is tired of answering questions about his Roma contract renewal. “At the right moment you’ll know everything. I don’t like soap operas.”

The Giallorossi have been locked in negotiations with the midfielder and his agent for many months and his current deal expires in June, so he could leave as a free agent in the summer.

“We are working on it and when we’ve finished then we’ll make it public,” commented De Rossi after last night’s match with Catania was rained off.

“Months ago I said that I’d be the first to come here in front of the cameras and explain my decision, as I owe that to the fans. I don’t like soap operas and this is turning into one.

“Rest assured that at the right moment you’ll know everything.”

De Rossi scored in the Catania game to equalise and the result was 1-1 when the pitch became waterlogged.

“It turned out to be an important goal, because after that the pitch started to get worse. The conditions did not suit Roma or Catania, as we are both very technical teams.”
