Benevento Sporting Director, Pasquale Foggia, was interviewed today by Rete Sport ahead of his side’s league clash this weekend against Roma.

The Stregoni executive also touched upon the club’s summer pursuit of Roma attacker Justin Kluivert, who ended up joining RB Leipzig.

“It’s true that we tried to bring Kluivert. The Dutchman, though, ending up choosing RB Leipzig,” said Foggia.

“We suggested to him that he join us for a year so that he can grow and then return to Roma.”

“This weekend will be a tough match for us. I like the spirit we’ve played with recently, we have no problems playing our game against anyone.”

“We‘ve built a group here with an important worth and character.”
