Chelsea winger, Pedro Rodriguez has confirmed his readiness for AS Roma following the expiration of his contract with Chelsea.
The former Barcelona star announced his departure from the Blues via social media just a day after Frank Lampard’s men were humbled 7-1 on aggregate against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
“After five wonderful years my stage at Chelsea FC comes to an end,” wrote the 33-year-old on his official website and social media profiles.
“Thanks a lot to the club’s board, to the coaches and teammates I’ve had, and of course to the fans: thank you for the experience of being a member of your big family. I’ve been very happy here, you’ve made me feel like home.
“It’s been a pleasure and an honour to play for this club and win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League titles, as well as competing in one of the world’s best football leagues. I made the right choice, I take with me wonderful and unforgettable memories. New challenges and triumphs will come for sure.
“I say farewell very pleased with this stage of my career, and I’m also very excited with the next to begin. Thanks and good luck for the future. Come on Blues!!!”
Pedro spent five years at Stamford Bridge and agreed a move to the Giallorossi’s immediately the contract expired.
