Pruzzo warns Roma on handing out salary increases

Former AS Roma striker Roberto Pruzzo warned his former team about handing out wage raises after hearing the rumors that Gervinho and Mehdi Benatia have both demanded pay increases from the Giallorossi:

“Nearly €3m salary for Gervinho? That seems really exaggerated to me because Roma did not win anything, they finished 17 points behind first place and haven’t touched a trophy. If you take this step and the next year you happen to win, you get to pay salaries that are out of reach…but oh well, it’s not my money!”
