Sporting director Gianluca Petrachi has won a legal case against former club Roma after suing the Giallorossi for wrongful dismissal.
The 52-year-old was brought in from Torino by former president James Pallotta in June 2019, but was sacked from his role after a bitter argument with the American last July, a month after being suspended by the club.
Petrachi took legal action against the Lupi and, according to Tuttomercatoweb.com, a court in Rome ruled on Friday in favour of him, citing wrongful dismissal at the club.
Roma have been ordered to pay €100,000 to Petrachi to cover legal costs and loss of earning through image rights, as well as the remainder of the former Perugia midfielder’s contract at the club, amounting to €5 million.
The capital club will now assess whether to lodge an appeal against the ruling or accept the verdict.
