Emanuele Giaccherini “happy” to play in Rome

Emanuele Giaccherini (Sunderland), spoke today to Radio Mana Sport about the rumors linking him to Roma.

Many have reported that you’re close to Roma…
“I don’t know anything about Roma, I read the news on the internet and I think my agent was clear the last few days. Roma is an important place and I think every player would be happy to play there.”

What’d you think about Garcia’s team this last season?
“From what I saw, Roma was the team that played the best football in Italy, but they’re still missing important players to win. To reach the level of Juventus, who’ve won it three times, there’s still something missing. Garcia, however, has done an amazing job this year.”

If it was the last hour of the transfer market in August and an offer from Roma arrived, what would you do?
“Well…today isn’t the last day of the transfer market (laughs)!”
