“I am pleased that Roma are joining the ranks of great clubs and I’m confident that Simone Pepe will be a great addition to our squad.”
“He’s a very positive player and will add great experience to our club,” added Sabatinis manager.
“He can play in a number of positions and he’s been a key part of the team since I’ve been here.
I’m looking forward to seeing Simone Pepe playing for Roma.”
