Paolo Rongon, Miralem Pjanic’s former fitness coach at Roma spoke about the newly signed Barcelona midfielder’s professionalism and more. Specifically he spoke about the possibility that Pjanic would be jealous of Barcelona stars and be a short term signing for the club.

“I can’t speak about Arthur but Pjanic is 30. Due to his professionalism and physical condition, he can still play for many years yet,”

“He’s a great professional and he takes care of himself both on and off the pitch. That’s why he’s suffered fewer muscle injuries than most players at Roma and Juve.”

“He recovers fast too and isn’t jealous of bigger names he shares the dressing room with.”

Pjanic being a non-jealous long term midfielder for Barcelona sounds great. Until he gets run out of the starting lineup and forced out of Spain in a few years.
