(ANSA) - Rome, August 1 - Forward Mattia Destro said on
Wednesday that he was excited to join AS Roma because the Serie
A side have big ambitions.
"I was convinced by the plans, by the desire of Roma, the
fans, the team, and the coach," Destro, who had been linked to a
move to Inter Milan and Serie A champions Juventus, told a press
conference.
The striker added that he was willing to play anywhere
coach Zdenek Zeman asked him to.
"I will give my best in training and then it will be the
coach (who) makes decisions," said the 21-year-old.
The deal to acquire Destro came only after lengthy wage
negotiations that dragged on long after the two soccer clubs
which owned his contract, Siena and Genoa, had agreed to sell
him to Roma.
Destro scored 12 goals for Siena last season and made
Italy's preliminary squad for Euro 2012, but was not in final
list of 23 who went to the tournament in Ukraine and Poland.
The striker said he looked forward to playing alongside
Roma captain and former Italy forward Francesco Totti, "because
he is a fantastic player who puts you in a position to do well."
But he refused to say much about the other teams who tried
to sign him.
"I am young and... I tried to choose the best solution," he
said.
