AS Roma appoint Paulo Fonseca as its new club head coach


Italian “Seria A” club AS Roma have have confirmed the appointment of a new head coach “Paulo Fonseca”. 

The club signed him for a two year deal. Paulo Fonseca took over from Claudio Ranieri who was appointed as an interim coach until the end of the 2018/2019 league season. He was the former Shakhtar Donetsk bos, and he had successfully taken the Ukrainian club side to the top flight league and a cup double within three years between 2016 and 2019.

“I am very pleased to be appointed the head coach of AS Roma,” Portuguese Fonseca said in a statement. “I want to thank the club’s management for the opportunity they have given me. I am excited and motivated by the task ahead of us.” 

“Paulo is a young and ambitious coach with international experience, a winning mentality and a reputation for bold, attacking football that will excite our fans,” Roma president Jim Pallotta said.

“From the very first conversations we had with him, he made it very clear he wanted to come to Roma and was excited about the challenge of working with our players and putting out a team that the fans can be proud of.”

Paulo Fonseca will be faced with a huge task of leading Roma back into the Champions League after the club finished sixth in Serie A league table and also  missed out on qualifying for Europe’s premier club competition for the first time since 2013.
