Former Roma sporting director Sabatini spoke about the midfielder of the Lupi again. Pastore was one of his best picks.
Many fans believe he was the best sporting director Roma ever had. Walter Sabatini played his role with competence and wisdom. His best pick for the Giallorossi could have been Alisson. The Brazilian player is now considered the best goalkeeper in the world.
Walter Sabatini spoke about Javier Pastore at the Social Football Summit and clearly praised the gestures of the Argentine midfielder. “When I saw Pastore I thought it was a joke. I didn’t think a 20-year-old could be playing that way. When I brought him to Palermo it seemed to be in a fairy tale,” Sabatini said.
Pastore was a phenomenal player and he is currently rediscovering the joy of playing football at Roma. The former Argentina international is delighting the crowds. Paulo Fonseca is giving him consistent playing time as a trequartista.
“When he joined Roma, he was playing without rhythm. But now he is playing a bit of his football. He was the man of dreams,” Walter Sabatini stated.
