Former Roma President Rosella Sensi revealed she had “wanted to bring in Rafa Benitez.”
The Spanish Coach has forged a Serie A career at Inter and now Napoli, but could’ve started in the Capital.
“Someone who collaborated with me had thought about bringing Benitez to Roma, but the Spanish Coach couldn’t come for a series of reasons,” Sensi told Radio Kiss Kiss.
She was in charge of the club from August 2008 to June 2011, when the club was sold to American investors.
