In an interviewwith Sky Sport Italia, Roma midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo spoke about his emotional relationship with his club, as well as his long term ambitions to match club legends that came before him.
“For me, Totti is the idol of Rome, the symbol of the city. Players like him and De Rossi are difficult to match. I’d like to become a symbol of Rome myself, even if right now I can’t think about that: my only objective right now is to get back onto the pitch and entertain the fans.”
“We’ll see what happens, even if my intention is to stay at Roma for the long term, because this team has given me everything and I have fallen in love with this club. I wouldn’t take the number 10 shirt, 22 is my number and I’m happy with that.”
