Damiano Tommasi has signed new one-year contract with the club.
Roma midfielder Damiano Tommasi has signed new one-year contract with the club but will only be earning the minimum wage.
The 31-year-old picked up a serious knee injury during his side's friendly with Stoke City last summer and did not play all season.
It was thought the injury may end his career but the former Italy international refused to consider retirement as an option.
His contract expired in June this year but the player has been in talks with the club to negotiate a new deal.
It was Tommasi who defined the salary cut and Roma accepted his deal's conditions.
He has now fully recovered from the injury and is ready to prove himself to coach Luciano Spalletti and fight for his place in the squad.
