Aldair regrets Benatia situation

AS Roma legend Aldair spoke today regarding the transfer speculation surrounding Mehdi Benatia:

“I haven’t followed closely the problem that he has, I do not know if it’s with the city or with the club. I think that a player who wants to leave has had some problems. I’m happy for what he has done here so far. It’s clear that he’s one who is very good. The director, the president must try to keep him. The supporters of Roma embrace the hearts of those who are on the pitch.”
