Roma have now formally suspended director of sport Gianluca Petrachi, with CEO Guido Fienga briefly taking on switch negotiations.
There had been reports in La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia, however the information was confirmed with a proper assertion by the membership.
“AS Roma can affirm that it has as we speak suspended Gianluca Petrachi of his duties as sporting director with instant impact. The coach, and the group, might be guided instantly by membership CEO, Guido Fienga.”
This was the most recent step within the complete breakdown of the rapport between Petrachi and President James Pallotta, which exploded right into a livid row over the phone final week.
Petrachi was solely poached from Torino just below a 12 months in the past, himself changing Monchi who lasted barely 18 months within the position.
It’s urged it is a step in direction of Roma making an attempt to fireside Petrachi for simply trigger, which means they might not must pay the remaining wages in his contract, which runs to June 2022.
Morgan De Sanctis is broadly anticipated to be promoted to director of sport ultimately, as he already works carefully with unofficial advisor to Pallotta and former director common of the membership, Franco Baldini.
