SPAL in talks for Balzaretti

Former Roma director Federico Balzaretti is in advanced negotiations for a job with SPAL, confirmed President Walter Mattioli.

Balzaretti had been at Roma for seven years, but his contract was not renewed as part of a complete overhaul of their directorial and scouting network.

He won’t be out of a job for long, as SPAL have already made the former full-back an offer.

“I am trying to bring Balzaretti to SPAL, as I want to make our staff even stronger, enriching it with new important skillsets,” Mattioli told Il Tempo.
