Roma leaning toward appointing sporting director with Serie A experience

Andy Mattioli

Roma are said to be considering various profiles to eventually replace General Manager Tiago Pinto in January.

The Portuguese executive will leave the capital club upon the conclusion of his 3-year deal.

In his place, La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests Roma are prioritizing candidates that are familiar with the Italian top flight.

In fact, President Dan Friedkin, together with Roma CEO Lina Souloukou, is reportedly involved in the search for Pinto’s replacement.

For the time being, the profiles of previously linked candidates such as Javier Ribalta and Christopher Vivell have not sparked much enthusiasm within the club’s management given their background and their lack of experience in Italy and in dealing with Italian agents.

Friedkin’s instructions have been clear – the priority remains replacing Pinto with someone who has had experience in Serie A and more specifically while operating with limited means.
