Roma 'will be Euro giants'

Roma director general Mauro Baldissoni confirmed they want to make the club “one of the biggest in Europe.”

The Giallorossi are top of the Serie A table with a 100 per cent record after seven rounds.

“The results are a way of measuring the work we are doing. Our work is based in depth so that it can continue and last in the future,” Baldissoni told Roma Channel.

“We are concentrated on the pitch, but also on what is around it. It requires a solid and efficient organisation from the youth system to bringing people back to the stadium to constructing a new venue that can multiply revenue.

“If we don’t recognise the potential of this club, we’d be doing a disservice to this team and its fans. We are not one of the biggest in Europe yet, but it’s our duty to try and get there.

“Our margin of growth is infinite on the world stage. Even in Indonesia, where we will play in November, we want to make ourselves seen and attract supporters.”

Roma have long promised plans to build their own stadium in the Tor di Valle area of the city.

“We started this process a year and a half ago, so we’ll continue working on it regardless of whether the law on stadiums is passed.”

The incredible start to the season is a particular surprise considering the club sold Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, Erik Lamela and Marquinhos.

“Any transfer decision was evaluated in the interests of Roma and the competitiveness of the side. We move on a market where the other clubs have a greater financial clout than us.”
