In fact, after the player’s decision not to make himself available for the match against Spezia, the official reaction of the yellow and red manager arrived: “It’s not the first time this has happened…”. And now what happens?
Rome and Nicolò Zaniolo are increasingly distant. In fact, after the player’s decision not to make himself available for the match against Spezia, the official reaction of the Friedkin club arrived. To harshly condemn the behavior of the class of ’99 it was not – at least for now – José Mourinho but the general manager Tiago Pinto. In the pre-match from the Peak, the words of the Roma manager widen the gap between the club and the player: “Zaniolo? We all know in football that there are two different seasons: the one with the market closed, when maybe we have more serenity, and the one with the open market and occasionally individual interests are put before collective ones”. The Portuguese GM increases the dose: “Unfortunately it’s not the first time it’s happened, it’s not the first time it’s happened, so today everyone who has the desire and the motivation to fight for the team is here. I may have made mistakes many times but from my first day to the last the collective interests of the team and Roma will always come first.”
So far, no offers have arrived in Trigoria that are considered satisfactory for Zaniolo’s transfer. Also for this reason, Pinto doesn’t say too much when asked what would happen if he weren’t able to sell the striker: “As I said, we are used to the fact that there are two different seasons, what happens inside the market and outside the The market is totally different. However, we have to wait for the end of the transfer market and surely on February 1st there will be a compact, strong Rome with very clear objectives in mind”.
Pinto also comments on the 15 penalty points inflicted on Juventus and the advantages that Roma could derive from it to reach a placement in the Champions League: “In my opinion, the situation can’t change much for us: we have to be serious in all matches, like today with It’s a really difficult match that puts us to the test. We have to try to win our matches because so many things can happen off the pitch and we can’t get to the end of the season regretting not having done everything possible to get to the Champions League. our goal is to win games and move forward.”
