Luca Toni: Iturbe is a really strong player

Verona striker Luca Toni was interview by Roma Radio this morning ahead of this weekend’s Roma-Verona fixture at the Olimpico:

Your past with Roma?
“With Roma were six beautiful months, intense. It’s a shame about the ending.”

“Yes he’s a really strong player and can become a champion. I talked with him so much last year and I told him that it depends on him if he wants to become a champion or go to work in a pizzeria, with all due respect to the pizzerias. Now he’s at an important team like Roma and can win in this important place. “
