Roma’s next sporting director still a mystery, decision expected this month


Tomorrow will be exactly one month since the consensual termination Ramon Monchi’s contract with Roma, and the sporting director situation at the club remains a mystery. Il Tempo reports that the “finalists” for the role appear to be Massara, Campos and Petrachi. A decision is expected to arrive this month, but there is still uncertainty around each of the names. Torino don’t seem to be willing to free Petrachi while Campos’ future is also a question mark. The hypothesis of confirming Massara and with perhaps promoting Totti to technical director is one that hasn’t been ruled out, but the situation in stand-by —- just as it is for the managerial search. Conte, who’s wanted by all the big Italian sides, and Sarri are the favorite profiles, while Gasperini, Giampaolo and Gattuso are the reserve options.
