Rome mayor Virginia Raggi took to her official Twitter account to bid good luck to new Roma owner Dan Friedkin following his acquisition of the club earlier today.

“Good luck to Dan Friedkin and the new ownership of AS Roma. We welcome entrepreneurs who want to bring investments and create jobs. Our football clubs are an important asset for the fans and for the entire city,” said Raggi.

The 42 year-old has been a very controversial figure within the walls of the club — as many believe Raggi has stifled their attempts to build their new stadium, The Stadio dell Roma, which has been in the “planning and approval” phase for over five years.

The final approval for the stadium is expected, though, sometime within the next month.
