Roma Making Preparations if Their Director Gets Poached

Roma exec Tiago Pinto has fallen on the radar of a pair of Premier League clubs. He has just another year on his contract with the team. Tottenham and West Ham are monitoring him and could pounce if he decided to depart in the summer.

According to La Repubblica (via ReteSport), his exit wouldn’t be shocking. The Giallorossi have been quietly preparing for it. If they were forced to, they’d hire an up-and-coming director, like they did when they turned to the Portuguese two years ago.

Roma are eyeing François Modesto in the event Pinto left. After playing for various clubs, including Cagliari, he served as an official for Olympiakos, collaborating with the recently appointed CEO Lina Souloukou.

He worked for the Greek club and Nottingham Forest for three years. The two sides have the same owner. The director contributed to bringing the Tricky Trees back to the Premier League. Last summer, he accepted Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani’s offer to be a consultant of the technical area at Monza. The Brianzoli have a shot at becoming the best newly promoted team in Serie A history. After proving his worth in Italy, the 44-year-old could slhave the chance to guide a big team.
