Former Palermo Director Walter Sabatini Excludes Roma Move

Posted by admin on Thursday, 27 January 2011

Walter Sabatini has said Roma have not made an approach to land him as a director at the club in relation to American takeover reports.
Walter Sabatini has said there has been no long and sustained contact with Roma over a possible future role at Trigoria.

Reports suggested the former Palermo transfer chief was being considered by the Lupi's prospective new owners - an American consortium led by Thomas Richard Di Benedetto.

However, Sabatini has revealed there has been no dialogue with the Romans, but gestured he would consider a move if he was offered a deal.

"It's an honour to be linked with Roma, but there has been nothing," he told Radio Centro Suono Sport.

"I was surprised by the news as nobody has told me anything.

"If they call me? Anyone would say yes, and me too. There wouldn't be a more important chance."
