Pallotta: We must do better

AS Roma president Jim Pallotta today spoke of the need for everyone at the club to work together - and work better - to put the club back on track. 

The comments came after senior Roma officials flew to Boston for the club’s bi-monthly Boston summit.

“We had a very productive three days together in Boston discussing both the football and business activities of the club,” said Pallotta. “It goes without saying that no one at the club is happy with the results and performances so far this season and we had an open and honest conversation about issues that we need to address and improve as a matter of urgency to get our season back on track.

“There was a lot of straight talking and everything was put on the table. Our only goal now is to do better in everything we do and we will work on that together - from me, our board, our management team, Monchi, Di Francesco, our football operations staff, the players and all the staff.

“Together we haven’t met the very high expectations we have set for ourselves - and have tried to deliver on in recent seasons - and that must improve. Together we are working to address that. If anyone at the club is not committed to being part of a team effort, there’s no place for them here.”
