Pallotta faces UEFA charge

Roma President James Pallotta faces a UEFA charge for ‘improper conduct’ after branding a lack of VAR in Europe ‘an absolute joke’.

The Associated Press reports UEFA’s disciplinary panel will judge Pallotta’s case on May 31, five days after the Champions League Final.

Roma lost 7-6 to Liverpool on aggregate in their semi-final, but the American did not hold back after the second leg, his team having been denied two clear penalties.

Pallotta: ‘Police were great’

Roma President Jim Pallotta hails the local police, and hits back at an ESPN pundit who criticised the Giallorossi.

Liverpool fan Sean Cox was allegedly assaulted ahead of the first leg of the Champions League semi-final, with two Roman men to stand trial later this month.

There were therefore fears of further violence last night in the return leg, but the game went by with no issues.

Pallotta: ‘Refereeing was interesting…’

Roma President James Pallotta saw a lot of “interesting non-calls” in last night’s win over Liverpool.

The Giallorossi won 4-2 on the night, but they went out of the Champions League having lost the first leg at Anfield 5-2.

“Incredibly proud of this team all the way through,” Pallotta said on Sirius XM FC.

“If you just look at the Champions League, everyone said we were in the ‘Group of Death’ and we ended up winning it, so right off the bat I think we surprised people.

Roma bow out with honour

It was another epic, gladiatorial performance from the Giallorossi and Giancarlo Rinaldi hopes they can build on this Champions League adventure.

It was always going to be unlikely, improbable, impossible - choose whatever adjective you prefer. Sporting lightning had already struck once in the Stadio Olimpico with the incredible comeback and elimination of Barcelona. Against Liverpool there was never anything more than a late distant rumble of hopeful thunder.

Pallotta: 'Ref an absolute joke'

Roma President James Pallotta said the lack of VAR in the Champions League is “an absolute joke and an embarrassment” after exit to Liverpool.

The Giallorossi were denied two clear penalties in the 4-2 victory on the night, but still went out 7-6 on aggregate in the semi-final.

“It’s absolutely clear that VAR is needed in the Champions League, because you can’t let stuff like this go,” Pallotta told reporters in the mixed zone.

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.

Pallotta: 'Ultras destroying history'

Roma President James Pallotta wants Italian football and society to rise up and eradicate ultras after the attack in Liverpool. “You are destroying our history.”

He flew in today to watch them beat Chievo 4-1 at the Olimpico and will be in the stands for Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final against Liverpool.

However, the American investor only wanted to talk about the incidents outside Anfield that saw 53-year-old supporter Sean Cox left in an induced coma and two Roma ultras under arrest.

Pallotta: ‘Salah wanted to leave’

Roma President James Pallotta says they had no choice but to sell Mohamed Salah, and jokes “are the goals bigger in the Premier League?”

The Egyptian international joined Liverpool for €42m in the summer, and has since scored 41 goals in 46 games in all competitions.

The forward will face his old teammates in the Champions League semi-final first leg tonight, and the Giallorossi owner was asked about selling Salah in the summer.
