Tiago Pinto announces Roma exit: “I’m leaving a better Roma than when I arrived”


Roma sporting director Tiago Pinto has announced his exit from the club, with the Serie A giants now expected to sign a new ma as a replacement.

Pinto was expected to depart Roma after the end of the January transfer window, as he believed that a cycle at the club was coming to an end. Under him, Jose Mourinho managed the club and took the club to the UEFA Coference League title, while also taking them to the final of the Europa League.

With the January transfer window now having ended, Pinto has left the club and he told the club’s official channels (via TMW) about his exit and stated:

“I wish you the best: I cannot thank you enough for this extraordinary experience lived together, during which I did my utmost to try to take you where you deserve, at the top, in a position that was at height of your greatness as a Club and as a city.

I will always keep within me your support, your passion and your Romanisti hearts, which won me over at the Olimpico or in every moment we crossed paths in one of your magnificent streets.”

Pinto also stated: “I have always believed in the project we have built and today I believe I am leaving a better Rome than the one I found when I arrived. We have had glorious moments, we have overcome difficult days and, now that my time here has come to an end, I can only express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me from the beginning.”

Roma have already been linked with a host of names who can replace the Portuguese as the sporting director. Paul Mitchell is one and so is Ricky Massara, who was most recently at Milan. But a decision is yet to be made by the Giallorossi.
