Perrotta talks about his retirement

Ex-Roma midfielder Simone Perrotta talked about his decision to retire this season:

“My retirement? I made a personal decision, I didn’t have any physical problems. It was my decision, I had plenty of requests to play elsewhere, but my intention was to finish my career in Rome, and then devote myself to other things. It’s clear that it is a closed chapter that was very important in my life, but now I’m finally able to enjoy the opportunity to spend time with my family.”
