The Spanish sporting director attended the presentation of Totti’s autobiography today and praised the Roma legend for his qualities as a director of his beloved club.
This is not an easy moment for the one who is considered a transfer market guru. Monchi has been fiercely criticized by the Roma fans for his summer choices. Most of the people in the Italian capital are not happy with the departure of their beloved champions Strootman, Alisson and Nainggolan.
Although Di Francesco‘s men need to work hard to climb the Serie A standing, today it was a day entirely dedicated to the Roma legend Francesco Totti. In the day of his birthday, the former captain of the giallorossi also presented his autobiography. His book called “Un Capitano” (one captain) represents his truth after having spent 25 years playing with the most prestigious club of the Italian capital.
Monchi was invited to the presentation as well and Sky Sport Italia had the opportunity to interview him.
“I’m privileged, it was a great evening full of beautiful things. My arrival in Rome brought me these things. I am satisfied to be here and to have lived a piece of Francesco’s career as a player and now as a director,” said the sporting director to the Italian satellite channel.
“Totti will be a power for the future of Roma accompanying those who will arrive and also important players.”
The Spaniard also mentioned the Derby della Capitale that will take place on Saturday.
“It’s something different. I have experienced so many derbies in Seville. It’s worth more than three points. It is the victory of the heart and of the fans,” concluded Monchi.
