Former Palermo director praises Roma’s market

Giorgio Perinetti, former Palermo, spoke to TuttomercatoWeb and praised the transfer market of the Giallorossi:

What kind of market has it been (in Italy)?
“It (the transfer market) is one of the evils of our football. Each team has a minimum of thirty players, this creates operational difficulties because it penalizes the inclusion of young players.”

The ‘Oscar’ of the transfer market goes to Roma?
“They had a creative and important transfer market. But Juventus also had an important transfer market, who kept their strong players. And also Fiorentina held on to Cuadrado.”
