AS Roma Name Eusebio Di Francesco The New Head Coach

As Roma has named former Sassuolo Coach Eusebio Di Francesco on Monday, as their new head coach, replacing Luciano Spalletti, who took over Inter,  signing a two year deal with the club.

"When we sat down to discuss the ideal candidate for the role of Roma coach, we wanted someone who could come in and get the very best out of our first team players and also help bring through some of the great young talent coming out of our academy," Roma president Jim Pallotta said in a statement.

"Our new sporting director Monchi singled out Eusebio Di Francesco and, with his style of play, we believe he's the right fit for Roma."

"I am extremely happy to be able to return to Roma, to coach a club that has always meant a lot to me," Di Francesco said. "I am grateful to President Pallotta and all the directors for this opportunity. I will give everything I have to make sure this team gets the results it deserves."
