Pallotta: Dying of laughter!

Roma President James Pallotta says he reacted to UEFA opening disciplinary proceedings against him by ‘dying of laughter’.

Pallotta faces being charged by UEFA for ‘improper conduct’ after he branded the lack of VAR in Roma’s Champions League semi-final defeat to Liverpool ‘an absolute joke’.

“I’m surprised by the opening of this disciplinary procedure,” he told ANSA.

“For me, UEFA’s conduct is inappropriate. What do I think? I’m dying of laughter.

“The authorities, CONI and Roma guaranteed professionalism that I’ve never seen in any sporting event before.

“We couldn’t be any more proud of our fans and the city.”
