According to the media, the Italian first division football club AS Roma is withdrawing from the Milan stock exchange after 22 years.
American tycoon Dan Friedkin, owner of coach José Mourinho’s club for two years, now owns 95.6% of the shares thanks to an additional purchase and was therefore able to apply for the so-called delisting. The paper will be withdrawn from the market next Wednesday.
Friedkin has invested a total of 650 million euros in the traditional club. The entrepreneur bought the club two years ago from businessman James Pallotta for 591 million. City rivals Lazio Rome and Italian record champions Juventus Turin remain listed on the Milan Stock Exchange.
