MILAN - Argentine defender Gabriel Heinze
has become AS Roma's latest recruit, the Serie A team said on
The 33-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid
player was officially presented on Saturday after his move from
Olympique Marseille where he spent the previous two seasons.
"It's a great honour to wear this shirt," Heinze told
reporters. "It's easy to say yes to a club like Roma."
Heinze played for Argentina at the last two World Cups,
although his omission from the squad for this year's Copa
America suggested his international career may have ended.
AS Roma, who finished sixth last season to qualify for the
Europa League, last month appointed former Barcelona and Spain
player Luis Enrique as coach.
On Friday, Barcelona announced they had agreed to sell
20-year-old Bojan Krkic to Roma for 12 million euros in an
unusual deal that includes a commitment to buy the Spain
under-21 forward back in two years.
Roma have also signed 19-year-old attacking midfielder Erik
Lamela, considered one of Argentina's brightest prospects, from
