The Champions League match between CSKA Moscow and Roma has been put in the archives as an unfortunate match for the Giallorossi who definitely would have deserved a different final result. Even if the final 1-1 leaves a great disappointment between the players and the supporters we must seriously look at the big picture. AS Roma is going to become a great team, a club respected by everyone in Italy, in Europe and in the world as well.
The wise management approach that Pallotta & Co are implementing on a daily basis is something that the fans should be proud of. James Pallotta is slowly shacking the entire Italian football system as well as the balance of power that since many years were fossilized by the clubs of the north Italy, Juventus, Milan and Inter.
AS Roma’s President is not just an investor but a precursor of the times, someone that is trying to create a super-powerful and global team. Together with his collaborators Pallotta is increasing the value and the appeal of the club by implementing strategic marketing evaluations, globalizing the brand, and investing in the medium and long term. He is doing that by using the best IT technologies and reshaping the way people think about soccer and sports in general.
Six big names of the Vatican Insider, Andrea Tornielli, Giacomo Galeazzi, Andrés Beltramo Alvarez, Domenico Agasso jr, Gianni Valente, and Gerard O’Connell, one day decided to write a book about Pope Francis and his gestures, words, phone calls, prayers, and crucial decisions but moreover they named their book “Pope Francis…The Pope of the people.” They will excuse me if I was inspired by their book and in order to write my article I associated the Holy Father with our beloved President James Pallotta.
Pallotta seems to be really the President of the People due to his typically Italian way of interacting with the AS Roma supporters. His gestures, words, and his engaging way to socialize triggers in the fans an unconditional trust in everything that he proposes…because he is a wise investor but moreover he is not a snobby businessman.
I can testify that Pallotta is one of us, a man who suffers during a match because he is a supporter like us! During the match between CSKA Moscow and Roma the President joined all of us at the Roma Club New York to support Garcia’s guys together with his people, together with those who are living so far away from the eternal city. He rejoiced and shouted when Totti brought Roma ahead and he was very disappointed when CSKA Moscow equalized just a few seconds before the end of the match.
Pallotta is our guide and thanks to him AS Roma will come to glory!
