Ex-Roma President James Pallotta on why former Sporting Director Gianluca Petrachi was sacked: “Ask Fienga.”


Another tweet from former Roma President James Pallotta has raised some eyebrows this evening.

Pallotta has been outspoken on social media since he sold the club and departed in August. After nearly ten years of ownership, the Bostonian officially sold Roma in August to fellow American entrepreneurs Dan and Ryan Friedkin.

Since his departure, Pallotta has been very active on social media and has engaged with Roma supporters to shed light on his tenure. He recently admitted that Roma’s status as a publicly traded entity prevented him from commenting on many club-related matters.

Today, though, Pallotta made eye-opening statements about two of the club’s former Sporting Directors: Ramon Monchi and Gianluca Petrachi.

“The biggest fault of Pallotta was trusting Monchi completely,” one supporter tweeted.

The Bostonian answered frankly, “I agree.”

He was then bombarded with questions regarding the Spaniard’s replacement, Petrachi. The Italian executive was sacked by Roma last June after being on the job for less than one year.

“Ask Guido,” he responded, referring to Giallorossi CEO Guido Fienga.
