Roma’s restructuring continues with Pinto’s arrival

RomaPress – Despite being at the helm for just over 90 days, Roma owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin continue to work on reorganising the club’s internal structure.

Yesterday, the Giallorossi announced the arrival of Tiago Pinto from Benfica  — as he was named the new General Manager of the club. The title of Pinto’s role caused confusion among the media and supporters due to the Friedkin’s decision to use the term “General Manager”, a title not usually used within Italian football.

There were also whispers from individuals close to The Friedkin Group who claimed that Roma would certainly bring another individual into the fold on the sporting side to work with Pinto.

Furthermore, the soon-to-be-official arrival of Stefano Scalera, who many outlets claimed will be the new General Director (DG) of the club, added even more question marks as to what the club’s structure will actually look like.

A source connected with the situation, though, has clarified on the new internal configuration of the club to RomaPress.

Despite the use of the term “General Manager”, Pinto is, in effect, the General Director (DG) of the club — while he will have the typical duties of a Sporting Director, such as overseeing the transfer market, he will also be the club’s main reference point for all things football-related.

In addition, Roma will not appoint another director within the sporting area of the club to work alongside the 36 year-old.

Scalera, meanwhile, will not have any football-related responsibilities. The Italian, who will begin his duties in January, will be tasked with overseeing the club’s relations with various institutions.
