Having just had his full ownership bought by Ac Milan, Marco Amelia, surprisingly already considering a move away from the fashion capital side as the goalie said he would gladly move to As Roma, should the capital club seriously wants him.
Amelia stated that his boyhood love for Roma is the main reason behind his consideration as despite that the Rossoneri are competing in the Champions League next season while the Giallorossi only gets involved in Europa League, the World Cup winner don’t really mind.
Moreover, Amelia also added that the Milan’s directors won’t actually mind with the keeper’s decision to leave the Rossoneri should there’s actually an offer as the ex-Genoa player claimed that the new Serie A champion’s management are aware of his dream. However, the 2006 World Cup winner doesn’t want to take things hastily as he opted to wait on who will be Roma’s new coach before expecting any concrete offer from the capital club in the summer.
“I am now totally a Rossoneri player, but I would sacrifice the Champions League for the Europa League if the call that I am waiting for arrives, “Everyone knows that I am a Roma supporter and I would go to that club on foot if necessary,” Amelia said. “Even the Milan directors are aware of this. Let’s wait and see who the new Roma boss is and then who knows.”
Beside of his love for Roma, another reason that probably triggered Amelia’s dream in leaving Milan for the Giallorossi is the fact that the keeper is not being considered as the number one keeper at the Rossoneri. In the latest Serie A season, Amelia is being set as Christian Abbiati’s deputy, who pretty much established himself as the fashion capital’s team first choice after becoming an important act for the club’s Scudetto success.
Without any guarantee of first team football, Amelia, who still has an ambition to get into the Italian national team squad once again, surely still eyes for a team that can provide him a number one status. However, the ex-Genoa’s keeper’s wish might be difficult to happen as until the last few seasons, Roma never seem to have any strong interest in acquiring their former youth player back for the first team.
