The representative and father of Steven N’Zonzi has confirmed that Roma have indeed expressed an interest in signing the French midfielder this summer. The World Cup winner was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal during the early stages of the transfer window but that option is no longer a possibility with the English transfer deadline having passed.
As a result, N’Zonzi father Fidele appears to be in contact with several overseas clubs and he has now confirmed that the midfielder is attracting interest from last season’s Champions League semi-finalists, he said: “Roma are an option. Monchi is a great professional, he knows what he’s doing and what he has to do.”

AC Milan legend Clarence Seedorf has been linked to Brazilian top flight Botafogo to take over the club management. The Dutchman is the only player to win the European Cup with three different sides – a record that stands till date even though several players are on the two club mark.
Seedorf would be remembered for his glorious exit from football. At the advanced age of 36, the experienced midfielder decided to head to the Brazilian Serie A to play for the least celebrated of four teams in Rio. Coach Max Allegri wanted a youthful Milan side so Seedorf had to move where he had influence capital and would be taken seriously.

Former Liverpool player Alberto Acquilani has revealed that Ghanaian Kevin-Prince Boateng convinced him to join Las Palmas this summer. Both stars featured at AC Milan years back so there is history between them.
Acquilani agreed to a two year deal with the Serie A side.
“Prince told me this is an amazing place to play and I’m looking forward to starting this new chapter in my career. As well as technique and experience, I can offer other physical and mental aspects and footballing characteristics,” the 33-year old disclosed.
The former Premier League player says he is looking forward to the best in the La Liga with the quality players Las Palmas have.
Funny enough, Boateng would not be available to play alongside him as he moved to EintrachtFrankfiurt in a shock move recently. The 30-year old claimed he was moving back to German football due to family requirements.
“I am making this decision for my family, which is the most important thing. I have decided as a father, as a husband, not as a player,” he explained. Continue reading “ALBERTO ACQUILANI SAYS BOATENG CONVINCED HIM TO JOIN LAS PALMAS”
Rafa Benitez once said that a lot of things that has to do with football are nothing but “lies.”
Most especially when it comes to metric used in placing players and clubs into the various categories from useless to greatest.
In spending 26 years at AS Roma, Francesco Totti finally hung up his boots at the age of 40 having joined theGiallorossi in 1989 as a 13-year old and lived his whole life in the city of Rome.
With the characteristic manner evaluations almost immediately trail retiring players, ball shot analysis of where the Italian belongs among the league of great players will for sure trail tabloids till another news worthy item drops. That is if he is even allowed the status of a great player.
The problem one-man squad professionals have – of course they are very few – isthe scoffy assumptions that players must prove themselves in different or at least bigger teams and leagues before they can be considered great.
Another harsher metric is the trophy counts especially the majors. This particular metric will for sure stay around because afterall the ultimate point of playing football is to get the round leather over the line between the sticks of your opposition and the ultimate point of winning is the trophies. Continue reading “FORGET LACK OF TITLES, TOTTI IS A LEGEND”
