Pallotta Refuses To Leave

Hated Roma president James Pallotta has apologised to the fans after a "complete disaster" of a season. Roma finished 6th in Serie A and sacked manager Eusebio di Francesco in March, as well as allowing legendary midfielder Daniele de Rossi to leave. Despite the fans protesting against his reign and a dressing room revolt against his leadership, Pallotta has decided a lengthy letter is the best way to answer his critics. Pallotta wrote: "I don't think anyone at the club has been more disappointed, more depressed or more upset with how things have gone at Roma over the past 18 months than I have been. It's obvious to me that there are certain people who are unhappy that they can't manipulate, blackmail or berate me enough to get me to sell the team. I understand the history of almost 3,000 years of Rome and I know how this works. If people think they're going to drive me out, it's just not going to happen." Pallotta also admitted he lied to de Rossi, mishandled de Rossi's exit, was indecisive over changes needing to be made and messed up recruitment in the summer. Basically he has continued to be utterly inept in his leadership of the club and failed to learn any lessons from previous years.

 

Loew To Miss Qualifiers

Germany manager Joachim Loew has picked up an injury which means he will miss the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia while having treatment in hospital for a contused artery. Loew said: "I feel quite well already, but I need to give my body a rest for the next four weeks. I'm in constant communication with my coaching staff, and we will stay in touch via phone ahead of both matches." Assistant Marcus Sorg will take charge of the qualifiers.
