Fabio Capello reveals he rejected a proposed exchange between Roma legend Daniele De Rossi and Juventus midfielder Edgar Davids.

Florenzi: 'I'll talk to Fonseca'

Alessandro Florenzi hopes to have his future sorted when ‘I return to Roma’ after his Valencia loan and ‘owes’ Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi.

Florenzi joined Valencia on loan for the rest of the season in January but played just five times for the Spanish side, who in turn are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for the right-back.

Dani Osvaldo gave a typically outrageous interview in Argentina, including a Roma bar brawl, too much information about Francesco Totti and hating Cesare Prandelli.

The striker is still going with Banfield, returning to football after a break so he could focus on his band and taking part in Italy’s version of Dancing with the Stars.

“I was about to get killed in a bar brawl in Rome,” Osvaldo told TNT Sports. “I asked Totti and Daniele De Rossi to accompany me and sort things out. I’m not stupid…”

Roma and Claudio Ranieri went from being bottom of Serie A to pushing Inter all the way for the Scudetto, but stumbled on the home straight...

Words: Livio Caferoglu

Roma are unrivalled when it comes to being the ‘nearly men’ of Italian football. Despite spending just one of their 92 years in existence outside of Serie A, they have won only three Scudetti and finished runners-up on no less than 14 occasions.
