Sabelli admits surprise to Bari purchase

Stefano Sabelli, right-back of Bari, admitted today that he was shocked after he became fully-owned by Bari after Roma lost out to the Serie B outfit in the bidding war after they were unable to reach an agreement on the player’s co-ownership.

“Roma? It was a surprise, but I’m proud that Bari has pointed to me. I read the draft of President Gianluca Paparesta’s speech, in which he repeatedly said that his intention is to build a competitive team that relies especially on young talent. I think this is a good thing and is certainly very challenging.”
