Alessandro Florenzi on his renewal

Alessandro Florenzi spoke to Sky Italia this afternoon after renewing his contract with AS Roma:

“Allegri says that if we don’t win the league title that it would be a partial failure? No, certainly it would be a big disappointment but we will bleed blood to do it. Totti? I grew up seeing him play on television, it still doesn’t seem real that I get to play on the field with him. I can only say that he’s a special person on and off the field.”

What about your renewal?
“It means that it ties me to a club that has given me more confidence. I tried to repay their trust with my performances and I am really satisfied with this contract that we signed together. I wanted it strongly and, fortunately, so did the club. So we met and came together: now we’ll be together for more years.”
