Roma confirm Daniele De Rossi will leave at the end of the season



Daniele De Rossi will leave Roma at the end of the season, the club has confirmed.

The Italian legend is in his 18th season at the club having made his debut in 2001.

He's featured 614 times for Roma, scoring 63 times.

His final game for the club will come against Parma on May 26.

Roma president Jim Pallotta told the club’s official website, per Goal: “For 18 years, Daniele has been the beating heart of AS Roma’s team.

“From his debut in 2001 to taking on the responsibility of the captain’s armband, he always represented the Roma fans on the pitch with pride as he established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe.

“We will all shed tears when he pulls on the Giallorossi shirt for the last time against Parma but we respect his desire to prolong his playing career - even if, at almost 36, it will be away from Rome.

“On behalf of everyone at Roma, I’d like to thank Daniele for his incredible dedication to this club and ensure him that our doors will remain open for him to return to the club in a new role whenever he wants.”
