Former Sevilla sporting director, Monchi, has taken up the same position at Italian side AS Roma on a four-year deal, with the option for a further year.
After 17 years in the same role at the Andalusian club, the transfer guru will start work with the Serie A outfit immediately, having left the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last month.
“On behalf of myself and the entire AS Roma team, we welcome Monchi to our family and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as we begin an exciting new era at the club,” said the Giallorossi president, Jim Pallotta.
“I couldn’t be happier with this appointment as Monchi is widely regarded as one of the best minds in world football.”
Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo, Monchi’s real name, joins the side second in Serie A after months of speculation surrounding his future.
“I would like to thank Roma president Jim Pallotta and the club’s executive team for giving me this opportunity,” the 48-year-old said.
“This is an exciting project and I look forward to serving the supporters, staff and players at this iconic club for many years to come.”
