'Roma seems like a ghost ship' - Gasparri

The Italian politician is unhappy with the leadership at the illustrious club, and would like to see Massimiliano Allegri or Jose Mourinho take over
Maurizio Gasparri says Roma "seems to be a ghost ship" in relation to the lack of leadership at the Stadio Olimpico..

Following the departure of Zdenek Zeman, assistant coach Aurelio Andreazzoli was put in charge until the end of the season, but now permanent appointment has yet been made.

The Giallorossi currently sit fifth in Serie A, and the 56-year-old believes that the club could do a lot better with the right people in charge.

"Roma seems to me like a ghost ship, which sails without knowing who is at the helm," he explained in Rai's Radio 2 programme A Day by Pecora.

"Luckily the players know what they're doing, but the property of Roma today is not strong, it's not what it used to be.

"Yesterday, when Roma played Siena, I was at the stadium among the grandstand authorities, but next season I will subscribe in the stands paying.

"I've been going to the Stadio Olimpico for a lifetime, since I was six-years-old, and I'm a big supporter of Roma."

As exclusively revealed by Goal.com in March, Roma are interested in securing Massimiliano Allegri's services for next season.

And although the policitian would like to see the AC Milan coach appointed at Roma, he added that he would prefer a more "explosive" boss such as Jose Mourinho.
