Florenzi: ‘Less passion at Valencia’

Roma loanee Alessandro Florenzi says he has found ‘less passion’ at Valencia, to the chagrin of the club’s fans.

Florenzi, who joined Valencia on a dry loan in January was discussing his stint in Spain during an Instagram Live session.

“I’ve found less passion but a bit more in the way of freedom here,” said the 29-year-old.

“At the [train] station, we showed our tickets like normal people. At Roma, we had to be escorted.”

His comments did not go down well with several fans of Los Che, who called for his immediate return to Roma.

The Italy international made just five appearances at Mestalla before coronavirus forced the season to stop in March.
