Former Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi took another subtle shot at the club during an appearance on Radio Sportiva.

The 53 year-old acrimoniously departed the club after less than one year on the job following a spat with the club’s former president, James Pallotta. He was sacked for cause by the club but later took them to court for wrongful termination, ultimately winning his suit.

“I have to get back into the game and get back to word,” he said. “The adrenaline and passion for the job is back—I’m eager to get started again.”

“I’ve gotten several requests over the past year, even from abroad, and I’m evaluating them. But I have to do so carefully given what happened a year and a half ago.”

“However, this time I hope I don’t make a mistake with the choice I make,” he added, referring to the Giallorossi.

“But I think now is the right time to get started back up again—even if I don’t know where it’s going be at yet.”

Since leaving the Italian capital, Petrachi has been linked with several clubs including PSG, Fiorentina, Genoa, Salernitana, and Bologna.
