Pallotta: “No one at the club is happy with the results”.


Roma president James Pallotta spoke today to the Giallorossi’s official website after the American hosted the club’s usual bi-monthly executives meeting in Boston. These are his words:

“We had a very productive three days together in Boston discussing both the football and business activities of the club. It goes without saying that no one at the club is happy with the results and performances so far this season and we had an open and honest conversation about issues that we need to address and improve as a matter of urgency to get our season back on track.

“There was a lot of straight talking and everything was put on the table. Our only goal now is to do better in everything we do and we will work on that together – from me, our board, our management team, Monchi, Di Francesco, our football operations staff, the players and all the staff.

“Together we haven’t met the very high expectations we have set for ourselves – and have tried to deliver on in recent seasons – and that must improve. Together we are working to address that. If anyone at the club is not committed to being part of a team effort, there’s no place for them here.”
