Petrachi acquitted after accusations of violating Torino contract

John Solano

Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi has been acquitted after the Federal Prosecutor brought charges against him following his “slip of the tongue” in a summer press conference.

Petrachi, who officially joined Roma in July, had a gaffe during the unveiling press conference of Henrikh Mkhitaryan — when he stated he met with Inter in May regarding Edin Dzeko. This would have been a huge program for the Lecce-born director because he was still under contract with Torino at the time.

Corriere dello Sport reports that Petrachi has been cleared the charges, which accused him of a lack of loyalty towards his Torino contract.
