Former Roma striker Nico Lopez on Roma’s Juan Iturbe

Former Roma striker Nico Lopez, who Hellas Verona pegged as one of the replacements for Juan Iturbe, spoke to Sky Italia today:

“Iturbe? He’s a great player. last year he had a good season and he’ll do well in Rome. We’re similar, but he might be a bit faster than me. I’ll try to do well here and take on my responsibilities. I want to prove myself here.”
