The goalkeeping saga at the club started during Roma's Scudetto winning season in 2000-2001, when first Francesco Antonioli was widely criticised despite the team's success.
That summer saw the arrival of Atalanta's brilliant youngster Pelizzoli, but Antonioli vowed to fight for his place - and Fabio Capello has stuck by the veteran goalkeeper - and be repaid with some fine displays.
Inevitably Pelizzoli is not happy at languishing on the Roma bench - after establishing himself as one of the brightest stars in Italy whilst at Atalanta.
"I've had as much as I can take of being a reserve. I want to be on the pitch," said Pelizzoli.
"If Roma can only offer me a place on the bench then I will ask to be transfer listed.
"I will ask my agent to look for another club and then consider my options."
