The Serie A club announced on Tuesday that Daniele De Rossi, with limited coaching experience, is the new Roma coach, taking over after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho. The 40-year-old former Italy midfielder, who spent most of his playing career at his hometown club, is making a return.
“AS Roma are pleased to confirm that Daniele De Rossi has been appointed as head coach until 30 June 2024,” said Roma in a statement.
Taking charge at Roma mere hours after Mourinho’s abrupt dismissal on Tuesday morning, De Rossi steps into the role following a lackluster third season for the team in the Italian capital.
Despite winning the 2006 World Cup with Italy, De Rossi’s trophy collection during his almost two-decade tenure as a Roma player was relatively modest, comprising two Italian Cups and the 2007 Italian Super Cup. He concluded his playing career at Boca Juniors in early 2020, spending less than a season in Argentina.
While possessing limited coaching experience, De Rossi’s brief stint at SPAL lasted only four months last season, culminating in the team’s relegation to Serie C. Currently, Roma sits in ninth place in Serie A, trailing five points behind the Champions League positions after a 3-1 defeat to AC Milan on Sunday.
