Delvecchio says goodbye to Roma

Marco Delvecchio has cancelled his contract with AS Roma and agreed to join Brescia Calcio on a free transfer.
Former Italian international Marco Delvecchio has cancelled his contract with AS Roma and agreed to join Brescia Calcio on a free transfer.

'Ten wonderful years'
"It was a very painful decision because I love the club, the fans and the town," said the 31-year-old, who joined Roma from FC Internazionale Milano in November 1995. "I spent ten wonderful years here but I felt that at this stage of my career I had to try and play on a more regular basis somewhere else." Delvecchio steps into a survival battle with Brescia, who occupy the fourth relegation place in Serie A at present.

Eighteen-month contract
Delvecchio, who has signed a contract with Brescia until June 2006, appeared only four times this season for Roma. Before arriving in Rome, he had a five-year spell at Inter, punctuated by loan stays at AC Venezia and Udinese Calcio. For Italy he played 22 games and scored four goals, including the Azzurri's goal in their UEFA EURO 2000™ final defeat by France.
