Pallotta: ‘Fountain closed tonight…’

Roma President James Pallotta won’t be repeating his post-Barcelona celebrations if they knock out Liverpool - “the fountain’s closed tonight”.

The American owner was filmed taking a dunk in the fountain at the Piazza del Popolo after the 3-0 win over Barça last month, earning a fine of €450.

Pallotta then donated €230,000 to fix another fountain in front of the pantheon, but he won’t be going to those lengths tonight, whatever the score.

“I’ve got good feelings, let’s see,” Pallotta told reporters as he arrived at the Hotel de Russie.

“The fountain’s closed tonight, I heard the colosseum is closed too…”
