Tiago Pinto helps Roma meet Financial Fair Play requirements

Andy Mattioli

Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto turned out to be the hero of the club’s financial situation in these past two years.

The recent financial statements showed a decrease in losses and a significant increase in the club’s revenue which is partly due to the earnings from player sales accomplished by Pinto himself over the course of the last few months.

By 30 June 2023, Roma were able to register €41.6 million from player sales, reports La Repubblica.

In January 2023 the first real boost to the accounts with the sale of Zaniolo to Galatasaray which generated a positive financial gain of €14.3 million and that of the youngster Satriano to Heracles for €400,000 euros.

Fast forward to this past summer, Roma were forced to generate UEFA’s required €30 million in revenue by 30 June as dictated by the Financial Fair Play Settlement Agreement.

Accounts in hand, the Giallorossi club obtained capital gains of €27.8 million euros thanks to the sales of: Tahirovic to Ajax (€7.01 min capital gain), Volpato (€7.5 million) and Missori (€2.5 million) to Sassuolo, Kluivert to Bournemouth (€8.7 million), Carles Perez at Celta Vigo (€1.8 million) and Providence at Hartberg (€407,000 euros).

Pinto’s work is not over – the General Manager will have to secure additional defensive reinforcements in January while still respecting the FFP’s financial constraints.
