Roma attacker Stephan El Shaarawy officially signed a new contract with the club, extending his stay until June 2025.

The attacker’s contract originally expires at the end of June but there was little doubt both sides would do all they can to ensure he remained in the Italian capital.

“I’d like to thank the club for giving me the chance to keep playing my football here,” El Shaarawy told the club’s website.

“Roma has always been my priority. I’ve discovered my second family here and I feel the responsibility of repaying the fans for all the love that they’ve always shown me. We’ve grown in terms of self-belief and being a tight-knit group over the years, so now we need to keep fighting to achieve the goals that we deserve.”

Giallorossi general manager Tiago Pinto also published a brief statement on il Faraone’s new deal with the club.

“Over the years, Stephan has shown how connected he is to this team and to this city, while also making a constant positive contribution on and off the pitch,” explained Pinto.

“We’re delighted to secure Stephan’s experience and professionalism at Roma for the future, along with his skill, assists and goals that have always made him stand out.”
