Andy Mattioli

Former Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto responded to the criticism concerning his decision to bring Renato Sanches to Roma on loan from PSG.

The ex-Giallorossi executive – who left the Italian capital in February after 3 years – spoke to Channel 11 about Sanches’ failed loan spell at Roma.

“His main problem is the lack of confidence which is due to the numerous injuries that have impacted his career over the years,” said the Portuguese director.

“To this day I am criticized a lot for having brought him to Roma, things did not go well for us, but my affection towards him and my expectations remain high.”
