The president of AS Roma, Jim Pallotta, has rejected Barcelona’s apology after the club snatch Malcom from their very eyes. According to Pallota, such was unethical considering the fact that the player had already done medicals with their club.
Speaking with an American radio station Sirius XM, Jim Pallota said the only way Roma could accept Barcelona’s apology is if they send the player back to them or Lionel Messi.
“There’s no question that we had a deal with Malcom, then Barca jumped into the mix unethically and immorally. They knew this was done.
“I have zero problem battling it out for a player with Inter or Bayern or whoever and all of us going through the same process. That’s the way it works.
“Sure some people say “it wasn’t signed”. That’s bull****. We all know how it works. The kid comes in for the medical and the signing is done.
“Other teams know not to come in and do what Barca did. Bordeaux should have never been doing what they did. Their actions were ridiculous.
“For Bordeaux to come back and say ‘Oh well, we didn’t sign it…’, well, they asked if they could put it on their website and tweet that he’s going to Rome.
“Barcelona apologised about their actions and how they did things. I don’t accept the apology at all. The only way I’ll accept Barca’s apology is if they send the player to us, and that’s not going to happen. Maybe, as a goodwill gesture, the very least they could do is send us Messi.”
