The Roma executives are selecting a new coach for next season and the sporting director should be unveiled soon. The Giallorossi should undergo a technical overhaul this summer but always respecting the rules dictated by UEFA.
Although Roma fans would like to see Jim Pallotta re-launch the club with great market operations, financial aspects may disappoint the passionate supporters of the Giallorossi once again. The ambitions of the American investor are intact but Financial Fair Play is a reality and it cannot be forgotten.
In the open letter written by the president a few days ago, the Bostonian businessman clearly highlighted his desire to restart on the right path denying any possibility of an imminent sale of the club. But the rules established by UEFA will influence his choices and those of his collaborators.
“We don’t like it but Financial Fair Play is a reality and it has dictated many of our choices,” had written Pallotta to Roma fans. “People don’t want to hear it but for a long period of time, there was a lot to clean up.”
Roma doesn’t want to be punished by UEFA because, as Jim Pallotta stated, “We cannot afford to be in that position or take those risks.”
The new sporting director of the Giallorossi [Petrachi!?] should be operative shortly. Reportedly, one of his main tasks will be to lower the operating costs of a club that spends more than it earns. Important decisions that could force the departure of some historical pieces of the group.
Reportedly, Edin Dzeko could be moving away from Roma. Inter seems to be really interested in the Bosnian star. Alexander Kolarov could be traded out as well and, due to his comfortable release clause, Kostas Manolas could be ending his adventure in the eternal city soon.
No dramas though! Roma will be competitive next campaign too. A new technical and tactical project will support the talented youngsters who are already part of the group. Some experienced players will be signed to help the professional development of young boys.
Roma faces an interesting new route. Hopefully, it will choose the right path at the first junction!
