Baldini is still present: it’s him to save Di Francesco from the ire of Pallotta


It’s sensitive time at Roma and one of the influential figures at the club is Franco Baldini. According to La Repubblica, despite handing in his resignation from the club’s executive committee last month, his resignation has seemingly “disappeared” — so it’s been business as usual with Baldini playing a major role in advising president James Pallotta. In fact, it was he who “calmed” the president after the defeat against SPAL. While Di Francesco appears to be safe — the next four match against CSKA, Napoli, Fiorentina and CSKA will be decisive in his future.
