Former Roma director of sport Gianluca Petrachi said he was ‘abandoned by detached club owners’ and had asked to remove people ‘leaking or even inventing stories.’
The director was sacked following a blazing telephone row with then-President James Pallotta, who has since sold the club to Dan Friedkin.
He lasted barely a year at the Stadio Olimpico after he was poached from Torino, where he’d worked for over a decade.
