An unexpected and unprecedented clash happened yesterday with Roma president, James Pallotta attacking Milan claiming they are losing their head.
The Champions League ignites the rivalry between Roma and Milan. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports this morning, explaining how the new AC Milan ambitions cast doubt on current hierarchies. Between the giallorossi and the rossoneri, in these months, there have been some skirmishes. Let’s take the transfer saga of the new rossonero midfielder Franck Kessie.
In January, AS Roma had reached an agreement with Atalanta but the intrusion of AC Milan, who equaled Roma’s offer presented to Atalanta and offered the player a much higher salary, ruined the plans of the Roman club. But not only, another contrast between the two clubs has materialized in the League. Umberto Gandini and Mauro Baldissoni tried to avoid direct clutches with Marco Fassone but it is evident that they have different visions on the political future of Italian football.
While Il Giornale writes that the first Champions League match between AC Milan and Rome ended 2 to 1 for Marco Fassone. The quarrel was closed late in the afternoon of yesterday with the public apologies made by James Pallotta to the rival. It is only the advance of the climate that will come down in the championship, the duel to achieve the first four seats for the next Champions League.
