RomaPress – We are still waiting for Roma president James Pallotta to give his final “OK” on the contracts that would see the club be sold to The Friedkin Group.
The Houston-based group signed the 79-page agreement yesterday and now the only thing left before closing is for Pallotta to give the green light to his lawyers, DLA Piper.
In the meantime, Friedkin has already started to gather ideas of what their new management structure could potentially look like, and it could include two familiar names: Gianluca Petrachi and Guido Fienga.
Petrachi, who was sacked nearly two months ago by Roma, impressed Friedkin executives when he met with them six months ago in the Italian capital. The Americans were impressed with his short and long term sporting ideas for the club and could have him return to his role.
Fienga, meanwhile, could also remain when the club passes to Friedkin. The current CEO has been extremely involved in the negotiations between the two American parties and could remain in the same capacity.
