Genoa striker Marco Borriello has lamented the lack of consideration at Roma, while targeting Euro 2016.

The former Giallorosso did not play a single game for Roma this season; now at the Rossoblu, he is all but satisfied at the way he was treated until changing teams in February.

“I wish I'd been given at least the chance of making a mistake, but everyone's free to make their own decisions,” he said, in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Genoa striker Marco Borriello has lamented the lack of consideration at Roma, while targeting Euro 2016.

The former Giallorosso did not play a single game for Roma this season; now at the Rossoblu, he is all but satisfied at the way he was treated until changing teams in February.

“I wish I'd been given at least the chance of making a mistake, but everyone's free to make their own decisions,” he said, in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I stayed at Roma, among other reasons, to change someone's mind, but I kept crashing against a wall.

“I remember that [sporting director Walter] Sabatini said in his first press conference that Borriello was a problem. They purchased [Dani] Osvaldo, [Mattia] Destro, [Fabio] Borini, [Seydou] Doumbia, and I was always the third or fourth striker, without ever being tested on the pitch.

“And yet my first year with them was excellent. I remember a statistic that said that in the first six months with the Giallorossi, I had a higher goal average than [Gabriel] Batistuta, [Abel] Balbo, [Rudi] Voller and [Francesco] Totti.

“Then when they sacked [Coach Claudio] Ranieri and [Vincenzo] Montella started playing Totti as a striker, it all went downhill.

“I already wanted to go back to Genoa last season, thinking I'd score at least 15 goals and make it to the World Cup.

“But Destro was injured and they didn't let me go. When Totti himself went down I played eight games out of the ten consecutive victories, scoring in the tenth. It was a personal satisfaction.

“Now all I want is Genoa. I chose this team to reboot my career. These two years are important as they lead to the Euros, a target that matters for everyone. I want to make a go for it too.”
