Former Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini calls President James Pallotta “an insecure man”.

The famed transfer guru is now technical director at Sampdoria, but he still retains a love for the Giallorossi thanks to his time in the capital.

“I’m trying to heal from the Roma disease, I can’t carry it with me all my life,” Sabatini told Corriere dello Sport.

“Roma is not a team, it’s a state of being in your soul. I can’t carry that with me for all my life.

Milan fans turn on Yonghong Li

A year on from Silvio Berlusconi’s sale, Milan supporters finally realise Yonghong Li is not qualified to run the club, writes Matthew Santangelo.

A sense of relief filled each and every Milan supporter last summer as three-decade President Silvio Berlusconi finally relinquished the club to Yonghong Li, a name determined to invest significantly in the market and restore order to the Rossoneri regime by spending upward of €200m on nearly a dozen fresh faces.

One after the other, handshakes were shared between CEO Marco Fassone, sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli and a new signing brought in to build a winner once again out of the seven-time Champions League victors.

Pallotta: ‘I was joking!’

Roma President James Pallotta confirms “I was joking” when he said Alisson would join Real Madrid and Radja Nainggolan would go to Inter.

The Giallorossi owner was in Naples today, and gave some brief quotes to the website AreaNapoli.

However, as we pointed out in our translation of the story, he was speaking in English meaning there was the potential for something to be lost due to the language barrier.

‘Alisson to Madrid, Nainggolan to Inter’

A Neapolitan website quotes Roma President James Pallotta as saying Alisson “is close to Real Madrid” while Radja Nainggolan “will go to Inter”.
