Italo Zanzi: “We’ve tried to be innovators within the system”

Italo Zanzi, AS Roma’s CEO, released a long interview to the portal Philly.com in which he expressed his ambitions and strategies to grow Roma’s audience worldwide. He especially pointed out that:

Jim Pallotta made a substantial commitment personally, as did his partners, and quickly moved to put together an infrastructure to grow the team.”

 

Zanzi also dealt a severe blow to the Italian football system by saying:

If you look at the success of leagues around the world like the NBA and the English Premier League, it’s generally based on a collective and positive action between the owners. There’s nothing wrong with being fierce rivals on the field every weekend, but off the field we’re a league and an industry, and we have to work together.”

 

This is a very interesting interview that can be fully read here!
