AS Roma’s combative midfielder Daniele De Rossi will end his playing career at the club after 18 years, during which he made 615 appearances and scored 63 goals in all competitions.

The club confirmed in a statement that Roma’s final game of the season - at home to Parma - would be his last for the club he joined as a teenager in 2000. Roma added that he would continue his playing career elsewhere.

“We will all shed tears when he pulls on the Giallorossi (yellow-and-red) 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,” said club president James Pallotta.

“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.”

A graduate of the club’a academy and a Roma supporter during his childhood, he made his debut in the 2001-02 season.

“For 18 years, Daniele has been the beating heart of AS Roma’s team,” added Pallotta.

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