Massara: “Monchi is a huge acquisition.”


Roma’s Ricky Massara, who was officially replaced today by Monchi as sporting director, to SportMediaset before Pescara-Roma:

Monchi?
The new Roma will move to improve, the arrival of Monchi is a huge acquisition, he’s the first of the transfer market. He has done extraordinary things at Sevilla and can replicate that in Rome, which can allow Roma to get closer to Juve.

Spalletti?
Spalletti has always been clear, he wanted to focus on the last part of the season, the results are arriving, we have a record of points per match but are behind a Juventus who may win the Triplete. What Roma has done is extraordinary, we will acknowledge where we stand once the season ends. Spalletti is doing extraordinary things, his work is excellent not only because of his points average and the results he’s gained but for improving players. We are doing so well and want to continue with him.
