Fienga: “The Champions League remains our objective. Smalling and Mkhitaryan? It’s no secret that we want to keep them”.

John Solano

Roma CEO Guido Fienga was interviewed by Sky Sport before the start of the Giallorossi’s match against Sampdoria this evening. Here’s what the Roma executive had to say:

The goal remains Champions League qualification: has the team seemed concentrated to you?
We saw this during the break and the lockdown: the lads were perfect during the quarantine and followed their at-home training programs. They always had maximum level of concentration — the squad is nearly fully available. So let’s start with the league and our goal of finishing in the top four.

How would you define the corporate situation at Roma?
Right now, we’re only thinking about the remainder of the campaign. We’re 6 points behind Atalanta and we’re only focused on trying to overtake them. Both the management and coach are aligned in this objective.

Roma will have to make some sale this summer: will Pellegrini and Zaniolo remain?
We’re not keeping them because of economic issues, we’re keepingt’s  them because of the many champions we have involved in our project.

Will Smalling and Mkhitaryan be among these champions?
It’s no secret that we want to keep them. However, their primary focus is on the pitch to show everything they’ve done up to this point.
