Stalwart defender Federico Fazio has signed a contract extension with AS Roma.
The Argentine, who was loaned by Tottenham Hotspur last season prior to being purchased outright, has signed a new contract with the Giallorossi. The new agreement will keep him at Stadio Olimpico until it’s expiration in June 2020, as per the club.
“This was an easy decision for me to make. Ever since I arrived here I’ve got on really well with all my team-mates, the staff and everyone who works here at Roma. I love the city and I’m really happy here. It’s great news that I’m going to be here until 2020,” said the sizable defender on his new contract.
Roma sporting director Monchi commented on the renewal of the former Sevilla-man to the club’s official website saying, “With the renewal of Fazio, we are keeping hold of one of the pillars of the team. Personally, I am very happy because I have always felt Federico is a tremendous central defender.”
