In an interview with Il Messaggero, ex-Roma centreback Philippe Mexes opens himself to reunite with coach Luciano Spalletti.

Where will your future be?

I still have a lot to offer, even if I am fourth or fifth choice in the rotation.If Spalletti needs me, he can count on me. I remember him as a coach with great personality. Now I am a free agent and I’ll be considering what is best for my future. There’s talk about a lot of different squads, but nothing concrete just yet.

In the capital you still have your old friends, Daniele De Rossi and Francesco Totti.

My rapport with them is fantastic, and I had seven great years that will always be in my heart. I have always been myself and I never hide – I made certain choices also for my family. Totti deserves all the praise he gets, he’s given his soul and heart for his city.
