ROMA announced that coach Paulo Fonseca will leave the club at the end of the season. Rome will not offer him a new contract.
The President of Rome Dan Friedkin said in an interview: “Thank you Paul for his hard work in the past two years. He led the team to overcome many challenges, such as the coronavirus pandemic and the change of ownership. He did this. Excellent performance.” A statement.
There is a clause in Fonseca’s contract stating that if he can win the Champions League, he will stay in Rome for another year. However, Roma is only seventh, far away from the strongest competition in Europe. In the Europa League semi-finals, they lost to Manchester United 6-2 in the first game. It is unrealistic to expect them to win the Champions League in that game.
It is not clear who will succeed the Portuguese coach.
