After the recent arrival of new owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin, another name is leaving Roma.

Chief Strategy Officer Paul Rogers announced on his Twitter account today that he is departing the club after five and a half years.

“In 2014, when Jim Pallotta asked me to leave Liverpool FC to join AS Roma, it was the hardest decision of my life — leaving my boyhood club after 14 years,” he said.

“A month ago, after almost six years at AS Roma, I made another incredibly tough decision — to leave a club and a team I’ve really grown to love.”

“I leave with only fantastic memories of working for Roma. Having seen us finish second, third, second, and third in my first four years — I’d love to see The Friedkin Group go one better and lead Roma to a Scudetto. If they do, I’ll be there to celebrate.”

“When some people leave AS Roma after many years, they highlight everything they think is wrong with the club. As an outsider, it’s not for me to judge whether that’s right or wrong but I’ll never contribute to the ‘ambiente Roma.'”

“Thank you for having me and Forza Roma,” he concluded.

Rogers has been praised by supporters since his arrival in the Italian capital for having modernised the club’s website and improving their social media endeavors.
