Monchi’s splendid gesture to give a signal to a city that does not focus on the context but only on the individual.
A direct message to both the fans and the boys arrived in a painful negotiation, the one that brought Radja Nainggolan to Inter.
Zaniolo, 18, and Santon, the left-back who leaves the Roma fans skeptical due to his very fluctuating career have appreciated the arrival of the Spanish sporting director at Fiumicino airport. Monchi breathes the air of Rome and he is well aware of the disappointment of the fans who love the Belgian star.
The Spaniard is the true protagonist in the eternal city. A professional who uses Totti‘s charisma to translate his message into the locker room. The Roma legend is his man among the players.
Monchi manages his staff with the authority of a general. Massara is his operative arm on the market, Di Francesco his technical collaborator while De Sanctis and Totti lead the group closely giving advice to the youngsters pushing them to give their best for the Lupi.
Monchi thinks and acts with the utmost discretion. Nainggolan has been traded out probably for behavioral issues but also and above all for economic reasons. The financial aspect is a priority in the modern football business. This was the moment to let the Belgian midfielder go because of his age and his heavy salary spread over the years.
Roma is in the expert hands and in the thinking mind of the Spanish sporting director. So many people are crazy about Monchi even if the master of the transfer market will have to continue his work of rejuvenation and reconstruction of the Giallorossi to improve a roster that needs to be competitive for the Scudetto.
