Daniele De Rossi has joked about his title as the ‘future captain of Roma’ following Francesco Totti’s renewal at Stadio Olimpico.
The forward celebrated his 37th birthday today after signing for a further three years with the Giallorossi last week.
“The nickname Capitano Futuro is now becoming a sentence,” he told reporters. “Given what has happened I’ll have to wear the vice-captain armband forever!
“The only thing I ask of you, captain, is to keep on winning.
“Congratulations on the renewal.”
