Federico Fazio’s move to AS Roma should be confirmed on Wednesday, as long as he can manage to pass his medical in the Italian city.

On Tuesday, Roma fan website Voce Giallorossi stalked the Argentine’s arrival with impressive dedication. They found out the flight number, EY7004 in case you’re interested, and then sent someone down to the airport to speak to Fazio just as he came through customs.


Fazio, who was greeted like an arriving hero-in-waiting, told reporters waiting: “I am very happy to have arrived at a very important club like Roma.”

He’s right to be so happy, it’s a brilliant move for the player. Considering for the past two weeks Espanyol have been trying to sign him without spending hardly anything, either on loan fee, future transfer, or wages, to then get the chance of Roma is very fortunate indeed.
