Pjanic: “I Never Wanted to Leave”


Miralem Pjanic has stated he never wanted to leave Roma after being linked with several clubs during the summer transfer window, including Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, and Zenit.

“Ever since we went into the ritiro, everything was clear between the manager and I. Anyway, I never had any thoughts of leaving, I wanted to remain here for the season. I wanted to return to the manager who has put a lot of trust in me. I am fine at Roma.”

There have been talks that the midfielder, who has flourished under Rudi Garcia, may be in line for a contract extension. “I still have two years left on my current deal and it’s not time to talk about it. If they (A.S Roma) want to discuss it, then that will be the time to do so. I, for now, am focused on one thing: give the best for my team.”
