Roma President James Pallotta admits he finds it “incredibly funny and strange” that Walter Sabatini and Luciano Spalletti have reunited at Inter.

Speaking to Corriere dello Sport for its Monday edition, Pallotta explained how Sabatini was against Spalletti’s return to Roma last year when he was still the club’s sporting director.
