Combative AS Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi will end his playing career after 18 years at the Serie A club during which he made 615 appearances and scored 63 goals in all competitions.

The club confirmed in a statement that Roma’s final game of the season - at home to Parma - would be De Rossi’s last for the club he joined as a teenager in 2000. Roma chief executive Guido Fienga said the club only informed De Rossi on Monday of their decision not to renew his contract.

“I apologised to Daniele, on behalf of the club, for not speaking to him sooner - it has been a problematic season,” Fienga told a news conference.
