Roma director Sabatini: I’ve committed a mistake not signing Salah



Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini regrets not signing Mohamed Salah after Roma got thrashed by Fiorentina Thursday night.

The 22-year-old helped the Viola to go through to the next round after their impressive 3-0 win against Roma in the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League.

Roma were on the verge of agreeing a deal with Chelsea for the transfer of the Egyptian international, before opting to sign Ivorian Seydou Doumbia and Victor Ibarbo instead.

Roma coach  previously refused to comment on the Egyptian winger, however the club’s sporting director Walter Sabatini admitted it was ‘another mistake’.

Sabatini told Sport Mediaset after the game: “Salah? He is a player to regret. It’s another mistake that I’ve committed.”

Fiorentina will now focus back on Serie A in the next round where they have to face Udinese away from home.
