Pallotta: “Zaniolo and Pellegrini can be future leaders at Roma”.

Roma president James Pallotta appeared on Sirius XM Radio today following the Giallorossi’s victory over Porto yesterday. These are his words:

“I thought we played very well as a team and it was unfortunate that Porto got that goal. You have to remember though that before last night, Porto were on a 26-game unbeaten run, they last lost in October. Guys like [Nicolo] Zaniolo and [Lorenzo] Pellegrini are intelligent, mature and thoughtful beyond what you would think…you are talking about players who I believe can be future leaders at Roma”.
