AS Roma chief Walter Sabatini says he enjoys working for the club's American owners.

Sabatini admits he's under less pressure with the likes of president James Pallotta based in the US.

"There are advantages and disadvantages: the absence is a blessed time, the constant presence puts you under pressure. Anyway, I consider myself lucky, I worked with great presidents, including Lotito and Gaucci, the one who invented football in Perugia," said Sabatini.

On talk of contact with Inter Milan, Sabatini was adamant.

"(Erick) Thohir has not arrived yet and they say he's already chasing five or six new directors and signed many more. There is absolutely nothing."
