Salih Ucan needs an Italian girlfriend to learn Italian says Altinordu president [divider]
Atinordu president Seyit Mehmet Özkan revealed that Roma midfielder Salih Uçan must find himself an Italian girlfriend if he wants to learn the language.
“If you want to learn Italian you better find yourself an Italian lover,” Özkan was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.
Altınordu will host an U-12 football tournament called the Izmir Cup, Roma will attend the youth competition.
Uçan recently revealed that he is not fluent in Italian just yet but that he is making progress.
Uçan has spent much of the season out injured and has found it difficult to make the first team as a result.
The 21-year-old central midfielder joined Roma on a two-year loan deal from Fenerbahçe in the summer.
The Turkish international is expected to work on his fitness and conditioning over the international break.
The highly rated midfielder has made three appearances for Roma since joining in the summer.
