Walter Sabatini still “dreaming” of the Champions League

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini was interviewed in today’s edition of Il Tempo:

“The FIGC? The reforms will not fix the footballing problem. It will be resolved by accepting the idea of defeat and the consequences of playing young players. There is a great hypocrisy in this instance. Roma? Again, I haven’t stopped dreaming of the Champions League.”
