The sporting director of the giallorossi confirms that he made the right choice joining Roma.
After 29 years spent at his beloved club Sevilla FC, Monchi landed in Rome 16 months ago. Although the club of Trigoria is passing through a difficult moment, the Spaniard is confident that his mission is on the right path.
In a recent interview with ‘Sports Illustrated’, the sporting director spoke about his business methodologies once more.
“We are a team of 15 scouts. Each of us works on a defined set of data that are inserted on a platform at a later moment. On the basis of this data, we decide which players must be followed not spending time on all the others. Not all of us are working in Rome. Now, we are building a network of 20-25 scouts that will report to the one in Rome” said Monchi.
The Roma fans are furious for the recent performances of their beloved team and due to the departures of a few key players. Alisson, Nainggolan, and Strootman have left the Italian capital and the sporting director is the first responsible for these deals.
However, Monchi knows what he is doing. Although Roma is a very complicated place to work in, the pressure of press and media is not scaring the experienced sporting director of the giallorossi.
“My goal is to build a sustainable economic model. On the sports side, my job is to bring Roma as close as possible to their top level. These are my main goals” stated Monchi.
