Roma’s president spoke to the Italian satellite channel ‘SKY Sport’ ahead of the UCL semifinal.
This is the moment to support his club with strength and vigor. The American investor and businessman know that Roma is slowly becoming a top European club. Thanks to his business strategies and the wise collaboration of several top professionals, the Giallorossi are now a great reality domestically and a rising star at the international level.
The forthcoming Champions League clash at Anfield Road is a deserved award for Di Francesco’s crew. Pallotta is excited and confident ahead of this important event. “I wouldn’t mind another 3-0 for us,” said the Roma president. “But eventually I’m not going to dive in a fountain again. If we play well we can defeat any team.”
Pallotta is superstitious and, probably, he will not go to the stadium for the first-leg against Liverpool. The Bostonian, though, has great memories of his father, memories that unveiled for the first time in front of a camera. “Rome and Italy have given me so much. Speaking of my family and my ties with Italy, I am sorry that my father cannot see all this because he is not here with us anymore. He died 7 years ago. He was really tied to Italy. Every year he returned to his country. He did it for more than 30 years. My mother loves Italy and my sisters often go there as well.”
