Alessandro Florenzi has said he was delighted to sign a new five-year Roma contract, with sporting director Monchi hailing his decision.
Florenzi, tipped to become Roma captain after coming through the youth ranks, ended speculation he may leave by committing to his home town club until 2022.
"Today is definitely a happy day for me," Florenzi said at a news conference. "I would like to thank all the fans that are happy like I am with this renewal today. I would like to hug all of them.
