Roma set to appoint Florent Ghisolfi as new Sporting Director


Roma are on the brink of welcoming a new face to its managerial ranks as according to reports from Il Corriere dello Sport, the Giallorossi have identified Florent Ghisolfi, currently associated with OGC Nice, as their prime candidate for the role of sporting director.

The decision to seek a new sporting director came in February 2024 when Roma parted ways with Tiago Pinto. Now, as per Il Corriere dello Sport, the club seems poised to finalize the appointment of Ghisolfi as his successor.

Sources cited in the report affirm that Ghisolfi, aged 39, has emerged as the favored choice for the position. While several names had been previously linked with the role over the past months, including François-Joseph Modesto from Monza, Nicolas Burdisso, and Frederic Massara, it appears Ghisolfi has won over the Roma hierarchy.

The process of selecting the right candidate reportedly involved meticulous evaluation by Roma’s ownership, aided by Retexo Intelligence. This specialized company supports football clubs in their quest to identify personnel who align with their strategic objectives and vision.

Ghisolfi’s candidacy is said to have resonated strongly with Roma’s aspirations, particularly their commitment to maintaining competitiveness while ensuring financial stability. French media outlets have corroborated reports of Roma representatives engaging in two separate meetings with Ghisolfi in recent weeks. It’s suggested that Ghisolfi’s outlined plans for the team’s future development have impressed the Giallorossi owners and directors.
