Sabatini Speaks Before Roma vs. Parma

Walter Sabatini, Roma’s Director of Sport, spoke today before the team’s clash with Parma.

Have you achieved the technical and economic objectives?
“The two things go together, we did not have specific goals. We had to replenish the workforce.”

The most rewarding bringing Nainggolan, Toloi or the young talents purchased?
“The former was already part of the team, the others will be featured in the future, we should check their quality and ability. But we are very pleased with what has been done.”

Having ripped Bastos from the competition gives you more satisfaction because Roma grows or is the result of the ability of managers like you?
“Roma is a strong club, I call myself the end user of the quality of the others. We are direct, fast, and we’ve got some quality. Others more than myself. Modesty is not a spontaneous remark. In football, there is a truth and a blatant mystery. I’d like to tell you about some of the things that aren’t seen.”
