Roma President Jim Pallotta is very impressed with Fonseca. The American investor is confident in the future.
New challenges and same ambitions. Pallotta, Fonseca and their collaborators are working to shape a new and competitive Roma.
The Bostonian investor had positive first meetings with the Portuguese former Shakhtar Donetsk and he unveiled his renewed optimism about the future.
“The meeting was very productive and terrific,” said Pallotta as reported by the AS Roma official website. “We tried to listen more than talk.”
Reportedly, Paulo Fonseca clearly explained his football philosophy confirming that he is a very attacked-minded coach.
“I was very happy with how he spoke about how he and his coaches will work with players individually. We need players who want to learn and improve,” continued Pallotta.
Paulo Fonseca is deeply focused on his new Italian adventure, a big step for his career in a very competitive league.
“What I liked about Paulo is how excited he was by the challenge of coaching in Italy. He spoke about how he has to be flexible and able to adapt to different situations.”
This is the moment to shape the roster for next season and Fonseca has highlighted a few players he likes. But possible negotiations cannot be revealed. “We spoke about players by that’s between us and him. He knows the areas where we need to improve. It’s our job to give him the players that can help him deliver results for his style,” explained Jim Pallotta.
Although many fans are skeptical about his way of running the club, Pallotta wanted to further clarify that Roma is extremely important to him. “I felt more excited about the potential of Roma and its role in the world of football than I ever been before. Maybe I need to do a better job of showing that. I’m looking forward to the start of a new future.“
