Boniek: “Pallotta doesn’t understand Italian football.”


Zbigniew Boniek, the ex Roma and Juve player, spoke to Centro Suono Sport this evening and commented on the Giallorossi’s horror show in the second leg against Porto:

“Roma-Porto? I’m sorry for Pallotta, but I believe he knows American football better than Italian football. Marciniak, the referee, applied the rules: you can not commit such severe fouls when you’re sixty meters from your own goal. I understand his bitterness, it happened to me as President of the Polish Federation in our matches, but I was never allowed to define a referee as ‘disgusting’. Roma’s game went wrong for other reasons, I fear that Pallotta does not know the rules of football well because the Giallorossi damaged themselves with two naive sending off’s. It is difficult to explain why Roma has not been able to get through to the group stage in the Champions League.”
