Monchi comments on the market


Roma sporting director Monchi spoke during the presentation of Robin Olsen and was asked about the transfer market. These are his words:

The profile you’re looking for?
Today there was a tweet from one of your colleagues, Austini, a sporting director works better when you discuss names less. Here in Italy, it is difficult, you work well but then it is difficult that the names do not leak out, we are working for opportunities rather than profile. We can not forget the things we have done well: we brought here 10-11 players before the others, this can not be a problem. If today I was here and surprisingly announce that we have bought Pastore, Kluivert…everyone would think it is a big coup. Kluivert was a great coup who arrived two months ago. I understand that everyone likes new players coming, but we must not forget that Roma has surrendered two important players, Radja and Alisson, but we are working on the market to improve the squad, it has always been my message until the last day. Malcom was an opportunity, now we are working on the possibility of finding something that improves the quality of the team, which is important. But I insist, the most important purchases have been made, now for the desire to make a stronger Roma we continue the work.
