Chelsea defender, Davide Zappacosta has admitted that he is ‘home’ after arriving in Italy on Tuesday to seal a loan move to Roma.

“I am very happy, I missed Italy so much. I’m glad to be back here, Rome feels like my home because I live nearby.

“I’m very happy. I know [Gianluca] Petrachi well and I know how much passion he puts into his work.

“I know the Roma supporters are passionate – Roma is a young team and I think we can do well,” he said, according to ASRomaPress.
