Benatia hopes for Pjanic renewal

Roma centerback Mehdi Benatia admitted that he hopes Miralem Pjanic extends his contract with the Giallorossi and that he gets to play alongside the Bosnian for years to come:

“Pjanic? We became really close friends in seven months, this is rare in football because it seems that everything is always fine, but that’s not true. We’re often together and I hope we’ll play together for a long time because that would mean Mire extended (his contract) with Roma. Garcia? He’s a great coach. With him, we are sure to win something, maybe not this year but in the future. We are convinced. We all know that and Rudi will extend his contract because we’ve had a great season and we want everyone to stay here.”
