Roma President Jim Pallotta is very happy with his new head coach Di Francesco and well-renowned sporting director Monchi. The Lupi targets the Scudetto.
Although Roma has lost its last Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, Jim Pallotta seems to be pretty happy with his staff and with the squad as well. The financer was interviewed by ‘Sports Illustrated’ and stated:
“We have chosen Di Francesco because we really liked his way to think. We were monitoring him for the past two years. Nowadays, we are a really tough team. A group able to play against Chelsea demonstrating our playing style. Even against Lazio, we didn’t care about the opponent but we played our game. This is a difficult league but we can win the Scudetto. We are close to the top of the standings with a game in hand.
Monchi has an incredible feeling with the team, it is better than expected. Let’s think about Pellegrini for a moment. He was loaned and I am not sure that it would have happened if Monchi was here with us. This is a player that can stay with Roma for the next 10 years. Our youngsters need to understand that we want them.”
