The Spaniard is already working hard to strengthen the team and finally reach Juventus’ level. Sunday’s match won by the Giallorossi confirmed that they have a great team made of 13-14 valuable players. Undoubtedly, Monchi needs to widen the group to provide a greater choice to the next Roma coach.
“I am ambitious but I do not sell smoke. I’m here to present the reality and I can say that it is not easy to fill the gap with Juventus but not impossible as well. We have excellent players on the actual roster.” – Monchi said at his first press conference as AS Roma sporting director.
In reference to the objectives of the club and the ambitions of the president James Pallotta, Monchi stated, “The Champions League is very important but it’s not the only important thing. We must try to qualify for the prestige it entails, for the growth of the Roma brand, and to attract important players. The concern is not for money because it can be superseded with work, but for a matter of prestige.”
Roma is in good hands. The Spaniard knows what to do and his experience will benefit the club. Monchi raises the bar. Juventus is the target, for now, and for the future.
