New Roma CEO Italo Zanzi has revealed the club's plans to become "the biggest" side in the world and admitted he agreed with the decision to sack former boss Zdenek Zeman.
Zanzi has recently become part of the boardroom staff at the Giallorossi and said he believed the side can become one of the biggest footballing brands in the world.
“We know what we are doing and our objective is clear: we want to make Roma the biggest club in the world, both on and off the field,” said Zanzi. “I am very excited, as I had the pleasure of spending time at Trigoria before my appointment. I got to know the club and the people, so now I am ready.
“We have an excellent squad, good directors and great fans, but a lot can improve, even if what we’ve done so far was not bad.
“We must work in an innovative way and improve by building a stadium on an international level. We want to give a unique experience to our fans. This great team is able to attract new partners. Trying to find new companies who want to share the project is the only way to reach the top.”
Roma recently fired Zdenek Zemen as coach in order to improve results after a poor campaign, and Zanzi says he agreed with the move.
“It was the right decision. Andreazzoli is a professional admired by everyone, there is great optimism and the results are backing it up," he added. I really like the honesty of the fans and their warmth. It is very positive and motivating. I believe a sincere dialogue with the fans is crucial. We will work to guarantee the happiness they deserve.
“We must all work together: team, directors and fans. Without cohesion you don’t win or overcome difficulties. I am certain that all together we will win".
