Monchi: “I always tried to do what was best for Roma. My farewell wasn’t tied to the sacking of Di Francesco”.


Ex-Roma sporting director and newly unveiled Sevilla sporting director Ramon Monchi spoke today to RomaNews.eu. These are his words:

“I don’t think we have to look back and say ‘This was a mistake, this was not a mistake’, I always tried to do what I thought was best for the club, knowing at all times what the situation was. I believe I have always done so, both in Rome and in Sevilla, and I will continue to do what I think is best for my club.”

On his farewell at Roma.
No, my farewell was not tied to the sacking of Di Francesco. It is true that my trust in Eusebio was huge, but it is a decision that the club took at a time when I already knew that my continuation at the club was uncertain. My farewell happened because at that moment, we realised that my idea of ​​the future versus the club’s idea was different.

Will Roma and Sevilla do business in the future like we saw with Nzonzi and Gonalons.
It is too early to say, we still need to understand what our needs are, but who knows, it could happen.

“I would like to thank the Roma fans for their trust and support over the past two years and I hope that the future holds for them what they deserve”.
