La Repubblica: Ljajic not happy with a bench role

In today’s edition of La Repubblica, it’s reported that Adem Ljajic, who has remained silent since the end of the season, is opting for a move away from Roma.

During Walter Sabatini’s press conference last Saturday, Roma’s director of sport admitted that Roma are looking to add a wing player this summer, which is Ljajic’s position. Ljajic is reportedly upset with this news and he’s unwilling to accept a bench role with the Giallorossi. If he isn’t given playing time assurances by Rudi Garcia, he will seek a move away from Roma.
