Report: Petrachi refuses to go easy

Suspended Gianluca Petrachi reportedly refuses to leave on mutual terms and will, according to Il Messaggero, be ready to take Roma to court.

The Giallorossi confirmed yesterday that Petrachi has been ‘suspended of his duties as sporting director with immediate effect’.

Roma CEO Guido Fienga will be working for the team and the breakdown took one last step towards a total clash between the club and the director, who is not prepared to let the current situation die down without a fight.

The newspaper claims the dispute is certainly not over and could develop over time, as Petrachi refuses to leave.

Il Messaggero writes that Petrachi had the opportunity to apologise to President James Pallotta for the offensive message but decided against it and Roma followed up by suspending the director of his duties.

But now, as the club had proposed a mutual termination of the contract on Monday that was rebuffed by the former Torino man, La Lupa could be dragged to court by Petrachi for bullying at work.
