If Roma’s change of ownership will become a reality, the management of the Giallorossi may not change, at least not immediately. Friedkin may confirm the current structure.
According to what reported by Romapress.net today, a legal executive of The Friedkin Group stated that the current management of the Giallorossi will remain the same unless somebody doesn’t agree with the vision of the new group.
If Dan Friedkin will finalize the purchase of the club, the American tycoon and his son Ryan will definitely need time to settle in a completely new environment. The executives currently working at Roma can give them important information about Italian football and the strategies that have been implemented over the years.
Any experienced businessman knows that a radical change in the managerial structure of a company is never the right choice right after a takeover took place. Reportedly, Ryan Friedkin may manage the Roma business in the Eternal City. Dan Friedkin could also send one of his trusted men to the Italian capital to supervise the overall situation.
Although the management of the club should not change at this time, the Californian businessman will likely need a little bit of time to assess which strategies should be implemented to make decisive improvements.
If the Roma takeover were to materialize by the end of February or the beginning of March, the new owner may wait for the end of the football season before taking important steps forward.
Stability is an important factor on and off the pitch. Over the years, Roma’s current president James Pallotta recreated the foundation of the club. The Bostonian investor developed ad-hoc commercial and business strategies to export the brand overseas. His meticulous work has sharply increased the overall value of Roma.
Dan Friedkin and his group may be soon at the helm of the Giallorossi. The fans of the glorious club of the Eternal City hope their team can make the definitive leap in quality.
