Roma have had a poor start to the season in the Serie A and are on the brink of Champions League elimination.
“I was ready to stay at Monaco, but I secured the move in the final week of the transfer window,” Menez explained to Mercato365.com.
“I didn’t choose to leave Monaco, rather I chose to join Roma. You can’t refuse a team like the Lupi.
“I decided to try and show my potential and I made the correct choice for my career.”
