Daniele De Rossi admits he would like to finish his career in MLS, and affirms confidence in Roma’s direction under Rudi Garcia.

In an interview with Roma TV where he was prompted to comment on a series of slides, being shown one of himself alongside an NFL player saw the Giallorossi's Capitan Futuro reiterate his attraction for the United States.

“I like these sports, in European football we are at extremely high levels but they know their stuff too,” said the defensive midfielder.

“We must draw from American sports. They have a great organisation, a great relationship with their supporters.

“I'd like to end my career overseas. I want to live in America, and I hope I'll be able to do that.

“Ever since I was a child I've been fascinated by Boca Juniors, it's unlikely but I'd find it a fascinating experience.”

De Rossi was also shown pictures of current Coach Rudi Garcia and his teammate Francesco Totti.

“Garcia has been a deft psychologist with us, he generated an incredible enthusiasm all year round starting from the lowest point of my career [the defeat to Lazio in the Coppa Italia Final].

“He created this atmosphere from his very first interviews. He will take Roma to the highest peaks in Italy.

“Talking about Totti would keep us here until tomorrow, he does incredible things with the ball at the age of 38. Playing with him is a privilege, as he's a player the likes of which will never be born again.

“As for [President James] Pallotta, he's a bit of a crazy horse, but he's doing a great thing from a managerial perspective.

“I'm always happy to see him when he comes along and he's a fun guy, he can talk about anything.”
