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.

Roma shipwreck

Monchi and Eusebio Di Francesco may have come short at times, but Andrea Tallarita is disappointed to see another mutiny ruin Roma's long-term project.

In the short crossing from the wreckage of the derby to the close shores of the Empoli game, Roma threw overboard both captain and quartermaster: Coach Eusebio Di Francesco has been sacked, and sporting director Monchi rescinded his contract.

Di Francesco is Roma history

Eusebio Di Francesco made history for Roma as both player and Coach, but Daryl Hammond believes the axe had to fall for Claudio Ranieri and another new era.

Having won Serie A as a player with Roma, Eusebio Di Francesco will also be immortalised as a Coach for his part in their historic comeback against Barcelona, but memories are very short in football.

Though his future seemed uncertain after a 3-0 Serie A loss to fierce rivals Lazio at the weekend, all would have been forgotten if they found their way past Porto in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 clash.

Pallotta: 'Stadium game-changer for Roma'

Roma President Jim Pallotta admits he expected to have a new stadium in progress by now, but he never thought about walking away.

“I think when we first took over the team, the objective was to utilise Rome and its history and attempt to build a global brand that could help us to be successful on the pitch. When I look back on the first six years, I’ll hold my hands up and say I’ve made some mistakes but I think in some areas, we’ve more than punched above our weight,” the Boston business magnate told the official club website.

Pallotta: Roma stadium or nothing

James Pallotta has warned that Roma ‘has to have’ a new stadium if they are to become ‘a top-five or six team in the world consistently’.

The Stadio della Roma took a big step forward last week, when they were given the green light to start work on the project, although Pallotta admitted ‘one unreasonable lawyer’ was preventing them from buying the necessary land.

'Zaniolo & Pellegrini are Roma leaders'

Roma President James Pallotta has hailed Nicolo Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini as ‘future leaders’ for the Giallorossi.

Zaniolo and Pellegrini helped Roma take a 2-1 lead in their Champions League last-16 tie with Porto on Tuesday, the former scoring both their goals, and Pallotta sees the promising pair at the Olimpico for the long haul.

“I thought we played very well as a team and it was unfortunate that Porto got that goal,” he told SiriusXM FC.

Roma depend entirely on Porto

Roma are gambling their whole season on beating Porto in the Champions League Round of 16, writes Andrea Tallarita, but the prize is well worth it.

Roma host Porto in the Champions League Round of 16, and everyone in the Capital must be feeling fairly apprehensive. As always, this has been a season of slumps and surges for the Giallorossi, but the troughs have outnumbered the peaks by some margin, and the team's record so far deters the would-be forecaster.

Faced with the heavy-hitters of the Italian league, the Lupi have gritted their teeth, withstood every hook and uppercut, and laboured their adversaries to honourable draws (1-1 against both Napoli and Milan, 2-2 with Inter).
