Monchi: Different ideas to Roma

Monchi has revealed that he left Roma due to disagreements with President James Pallotta. “The owners’ ideas were different to mine.”

Monchi vacated his role as Roma sporting director a day after the club sacked Eusebio Di Francesco, amidst speculation the Spaniard’s future was closely tied to that of the Coach.

“I left Roma for a simple reason: I realised that the owners’ ideas were different to mine,” he continued at his Sevilla unveiling on Monday.

“The President thought it was better to go to the right, I thought it was better to go to the left.

“It wasn’t right to carry on like that, but I can only speak highly of Pallotta and all those who brought me to Rome.

“You’ll never hear me say anything against the club and Roma. We realised we were travelling on different paths and decided to stop there.”
