Sabatini: “Second place will be difficult”

Roma’s director of sport, Walter Sabatini, spoke before today’s match in Veneto.

“It’s desirable for Totti to go to the World Cup. I am hopeful for him, for Roma, and for the fans. It is nice that he’s open to it, it means he is still good.”

“Winning second place will be difficult but we want to succeed. We’re having a great season. Pjanic? We are working on his contract but the arrival of President Pallotta could accelerate the negotiations. We already know, however, what we want to do. The stadium? A little optimism is good for everyone.”
