Dzeko denies Roma exit claims

Roma striker Edin Dzeko has pledged his allegiance to the club denying rumours and reports linking him to an exit.

Dzeko has failed to replicate a prolific campaign he once enjoyed at the club, managing only eight goals with five assists this season.

That has strongly impacted Roma’s campaign with the club struggling to earn a top-four spot in Serie A.

He was talking to the press recently and he talked about his future at the club.

Official: Claudio Ranieri named as the new Sampdoria boss

Claudio Ranieri has sealed a return to football management by becoming the new head coach of Serie A strugglers Sampdoria.

He said via Calciomercato: “Positive? Yes, but I didn’t win anything. It’s a bit strange when you make history and we don’t have to win. We should have done better in four years to win something.

“This year we should have done more in the Italian Cup as Juventus was stronger in the league. We didn’t succeed and I’m the first to be disappointed.

“I always say that I am happy here and in Rome, my family feels good. Rome will always remain important to me even when I finish with football.”

Antonio Conte has been linked to the Roma job, however, the former Chelsea gaffer has denied those claims with Inter Milan’s project seemingly more attractive for him.
