Candela: “I hope Ljajic stays”

Former Roma wingback Vincent Candela claimed today that he hopes attacker Adem Ljajic can remain with club, even though the Serbian has been the subject of several transfer rumors.

“I hope that Ljajic can stay in Rome because next year with the three competitions, we need strong players. I think Ljajic can be a high level player for Roma. I’ve never seen Jackson Martinez play, but €28m is not a small amount of money. Totti to the World Cup? Totti lives for football and rightly so, for him this would be the last World Cup, it’s a dream and he deserves it, not because of his history but for what he is doing in the league.”
