Baldissoni: “Unfair to judge Monchi now.”


Mauro Baldissoni, general director of Roma, spoke to Sky Sport before the friendly between Roma and Chapecoense:

“We have had so many Brazilian players that have been brought to Roma who were loved and followed in Brazil. Tonight is simply a matter of returning a bit of affection with a gesture, which is to give this city the chance to embrace Chape.”

“A judgment on Monchi’s first campaign? It would be unfair to give him a vote based off of a single acquisition, everything was planned out and he did very well. It will be more fair to judge him next year, as he himself explained that the transfer market does not begin in June but during the season. But being able to buy a talent like Schick we consider the icing on the cake, we hope he fulfills the expectations we have.”
