Roma’s management has announced that legendary captain Daniele De Rossi will be the long-term coach, stepping up as a permanent solution following his successful stint as interim manager.

Following a precarious phase that threatened to derail their season, Roma has found stability under the leadership of Daniele De Rossi. After the departure of José Mourinho, marked by bitterness and resentment, De Rossi, initially contracted only until the end of the current season, took over the reins. Under his guidance, Roma has seen a significant turnaround, achieving 11 wins, three draws, and only two losses in 16 matches. This performance has led the club to confirm his role as a long-term managerial appointment ahead of schedule.   

"We are pleased to announce that Daniele De Rossi will be the coach of Roma next season and beyond. In his short time as head coach, he has already made a positive impact. Daniele leads the team with courage and respect and embodies all the symbols and values of this club," the Roma management stated.   

Currently, Roma holds the fifth position in Serie A, which would qualify them for the Champions League at this stage. Tonight, De Rossi faces a critical test in the Europa League quarter-final return leg against Milan, where Roma will defend a one-goal lead from the first leg in Milan.
