Roma Chief Blasts Media Over Sack Rumours

Club president James Pallotta has accused the Italian media of making up stories about him following Roma’s 2-0 defeat to SPAL.

A 38th-minute penalty by Andrea Petagna plus Kevin Bonifazi’s 56th-minute goal was enough for the visitors to take all three points from the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.

It means that the Eternal City outfit are seventh in the Serie A standings and already 11 points adrift of table-topping Juventus.

Corriere dello Sport reported on Sunday that Pallotta was on the cusp of sacking coach Eusebio Di Francesco after the match but Roma consultant Franco Baldini persuaded him otherwise.

However, the president has now had his say via the Giallorossi’s official Twitter account.

“Contrary to certain articles in today’s Italian media, I didn’t speak to Franco Baldini, Monchi, Mauro Baldissoni or Alex Zecca after the match about the coach and any journalists reporting on imaginary conversations are simply making things up,” he tweeted.
