The AS Roma president James Pallotta released an interview to Mediaset Premium right after Roma-Sassuolo. He clarified the goal of the club and vaguely talked about Spalletti’s future.
“I had some positive feelings. I found the team in good shape despite the elimination from the European cup. In the first half we experienced some difficulties but in the second 45 minutes the game changed. We managed to win this match and this is a very important step to reach our goal which is the direct qualification to the Champions League.
Stadium? – Everything is moving on the right path. Without such a facility it becomes difficult to compete for big goals such as the Champions League.
Spalletti? – I’m very happy with him. I am satisfied with his work and tactically he is perfect for AS Roma. I wish he could stay with us but I want to emphasize that there is no problem in the relationship between us.”
James Pallotta was also interviewed by SKY and on that occasion, the AS Roma president added, “Surely he will remain until May. I’d like to keep him, but he must decide.“
