Newly appointed Roma director Umberto Gandini was interviewed briefly during his presence at Lega Calcio, here are his words to various media members including RomaPress.us:
After Milan, you now restart at Roma.
Roma is a great opportunity, it’s a great challenge with a club looking to the future with very large projects and with a solidity of established sporting results. Roma are a permanent fixture at the top of Italian football and have all it takes to go further including at the European level.
What is expected from the Roman environment given Roma are far behind Juve?
It’s a very passionate environment with a lot of fire for their team, but it’s an environment I’m not familiar with. So I have no preconceived notions, but I know what awaits me. I’m entering a club that is looking to charter their course from the sporting and managerial point of view to continue to excel.
