Sabatini denies Roma return

Bologna director Walter Sabatini has denied reports he is in the running for a return to Roma. ‘Although I love the fans, I am entirely focused on this role.’

There’s a revolution going on within the Giallorossi camp after Dan Friedkin agreed a takeover from President James Pallotta.

A director of sport is needed at the Stadio Olimpico and some reports pointed to a return for Sabatini.

“I read so many things in the papers over the last few days, rumours or just whispers that take me closer to the new owners of AS Roma as a possible ‘candidate’ for director of sport,” Sabatini told

“Although I love Roma and the fans, I am entirely focused on the project I’ve been carrying on for over a year as technical director of Bologna FC and Montreal Impact.

“I do not intend on shifting my attention away from here.”
