“It wasn’t work tonight, it was history. We had to make history. We wrote it.’

“Now I’m staying, there’s no doubt about it,” he added.

“Even if rumors pop up, I just want to stay with Roma. We need to understand what our owners, who are fantastic people, want to do next season because that’s history, but we can build a really strong project with honest professionals.

“We have to sit down and understand what the plan is for next season.”
