Daniele De Rossi could soon be following in the footsteps of fellow Italian international, Sebastian Giovinco in making a move to Major League Soccer. MLSMultiplex posted less than a month ago that Italian newspaper, La Gazzetta dello Sport had reported Daniele De Rossi’s interest in New York City FC and on Friday the midfielder only helped fuel speculation.
While talking to Roma TV, De Rossi spoke about his admiration of American sports and his ambition to one day move across the pond.
“I like these sports, in European football we are at extremely high levels but they know their stuff too,” said De Rossi.
“We must draw from American sports. They have a great organisation, a great relationship with their supporters. I’d like to end my career overseas. I want to live in America, and I hope I’ll be able to do that.”
