When talking about how he knows if players want to switch clubs. he said he texts some players while some others also send direct messages to him.
“Sometimes to ask information, or sometimes they tell me, Can you say something about me because I want to leave the club,” he shared.
Romano mentioned that, while he was playing a 5-a-side football game with his friends, he went to check his phone and then received a message that Zinedine Zidane, former Real Madrid manager, wanted to leave the club.
“To break the story was something incredible,” he said.
