Monchi: “I have no intention of leaving Roma”.


Roma sporting director Monchi spoke to Cadena Cope regarding the whispers that he could return to Spain.

Is the favorite for the Champions League Real Madrid?
Yes, they are one of the huge favorites but I would not rule out City and Liverpool, and I think this year, beyond Barcelona and Juventus, the English teams will be there.

Until when do you have a contract with Roma?
This season and two more seasons”.

Is there a termination clause?
Yes.

Is your intention to respect the contract with Roma?
My intention is to try to improve because we have not had a good start to the season – I’ll get back to work with the trust that the club and President James Pallotta have placed in me. Those who know me well know that I am not a person who thinks of the future, but I focus on the present.

Would a call from Barcelona change everything?
No, now I’m not thinking about these things. What worries me is today’s match and trying to compete at the highest level and take the right path, it would not be fair to make assumptions because it would not be respectful, especially towards the club.
