The club of Trigoria could be out of the Champions League this year and their choices must take into consideration this important factor.
Roma are failing to qualify for the next edition of the most prestigious European competition. Likely, the club will not be able to take advantage of the phenomenal revenues of the Champions League. The strategies of the giallorossi could change but always trying to maintain a high level of competitiveness.
The reduction in operating costs seems to be a forced choice albeit in the shareholders meeting that took place in the Italian capital last October, Mauro Baldissoni had explained that the Roma project is developed on essential economic rules and the high management costs of the club are necessary to maintain a high level of performance.
Roma will be competitive next year as well albeit their fans are still shocked about the imminent departure of their beloved legend Daniele De Rossi.
But as Baldissoni had said, if revenues do not exceed costs choices on players have to be made. Therefore, the non-participation to the Champions League would cause a reduction of costs but always trying to maintain high or growing competitiveness.
Sadness must not turn into despair. Reportedly, Gasperini is the name for the future. The current Atalanta coach could reach a legendary qualification for the Champions League. He would deserve another chance with a top club and Roma may be a good environment to develop his attractive football.
Just a few more days to know much more about the future of the giallorossi. Pallotta wants first-class professionals working for his club. His ambition to succeed must be taken into consideration even if at the moment the American investor is strongly contested in the eternal city.
