[Italy international right-back Davide Zappacosta believes that his two-year spell with Chelsea has benefitted him on and off the pitch] I think I developed a lot as a person over the past two years in England. I think I’ve become a stronger character because I had to get to grips with a different place, a different culture, a different language and a different lifestyle. It certainly wasn’t easy, but it was a very positive experience that allowed me to develop both as a person and a player

[He says that he did not hesitate when he knew that AS Rome were interested in signing him] When I got the call to say that I had the chance to come here I said yes straightaway because it’s a massive opportunity. I want to give all I have for this club, starting tomorrow

[The right-back will link up with the club’s sporting director Gianluca Petrachi, who he previously worked under at Torino and Zappacosta says that this was a key factor in his decision to join] He was definitely important because I know him from our time at Torino. I know what kind of person he is: I know how much he cares and how passionate he is. That was definitely something that influenced my decision but, regardless of that, Roma is a big club with good prospects

[AS Roma coach Paulo Fonseca is known for pushing full-backs forward and Davide Zappacosta says that this is something he will enjoy] Yes, I think it will suit me well if we play with high full-backs but defending is still an important part of the role, especially in a back four. It could be good for me, though, because I’m used to getting forward. It’s something that will allow me to show the best of my game

[Roma face Genoa at home on Sunday in their opening Serie A fixture and Zappacosta has fond memories of his previous games against the weekend’s opponents] My first goals for both Atalanta and Torino were against Genoa. I hope that’s a good omen for the season opener. It would be a dream come true to kick off with a goal but I think the most important thing is to start well as a team and achieve our objective of getting the three points

[Davide Zappacosta: I would love to stay at Roma] On a personal level, I would love to stay in Rome for several reasons. The main one is that I want to show the fans, my team-mates and the management who I am and what I can do. I have worked a lot in these months, I have trained and I have made sacrifices to be available at the restart of the championship. I am doing some sessions completely dedicated to the knee, because it takes time to recover better from this injury. But now I feel 90 per cent fit

England and Chelsea have given me a lot. I had the chance to play with great champions and win two trophies. The Premier League is a championship where people never give up
