Zeman critical of Pallotta, Monchi


Former Roma and current Pescara manager Zdenek Zeman spoke to Il Corriere dello Sport today:

What do you remember about Pallotta?
Little to nothing. I met him a few times, never on my own. I do not speak English, he does not know Italian. I’ve always only seen him with the others.

Then there was also Baldini in London.
I do not know how to judge, the president is in America, Baldini in London. A team needs executives to be close to them.

Monchi is coming to Roma, a Spanish sporting director.
I do not agree with these choices. Football in Italy should be made up of people who have experienced Italian football and have certain experience.

The new manager could be Emery.
Emery had important results with Sevilla, but there are managers who have more in certain context. Spanish football is different than Italian football, one needs to see whether he suits or can adapt the team to his ideas.
