Daniele De Rossi has announced that he will leave Roma at the end of this season.

The 35-year-old has been with the club for 19 seasons, making 615 senior side appearances.

"From his debut in 2001, to taking on the responsibility of the captain's armband, he always represented the Roma fans on the pitch with pride as he established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe. We will all shed tears when he pulls on the Giallorossi shirt for the last timeagainst Parma but we respect his desire to prolong his playing career – even if, at almost 36, it will be away from Rome," said club president James Pallotta.
