Pallotta: 'Roma title in five years'

Roma President James Pallotta will open the new Hall of Fame tomorrow and declared he wants “the title within five years.”

The American flew in this week for talks with the directors and Coach Zdenek Zeman, so will be in the stands for the lunchtime match against Atalanta.

Before kick-off, he will also be on the field of the Stadio Olimpico to welcome a host of former glories who will be part of the new Roma Hall of Game.

“It will be an incredible day and all the fans will be able to enjoy the Hall of Fame,” Pallotta told Sky Sport Italia.

“When I bought the Boston Celtics nine years ago, I set myself the target of winning the title within five years and I achieved that. I want to do the same with Roma, to bring them back where they belong.

“There is a good group of people at work here and I think over the next 20 years we will rebuild a great football club.”
