Roma lost their last three matches, 2 in the Italian League, and between them a humiliating defeat by Manchester United in the European League, 2-6.
“Roma confirm that Paolo Fonseca will leave at the end of the season,” the Italian capital club said in a statement.
“On behalf of everyone in Rome, we would like to thank Paulo Fonseca for his hard work and leadership over the past two years,” said club president Dan Friedkin.
“Paulo has led the team through many challenges, including the coronavirus pandemic and the change of ownership,” he added. “He did so with integrity, self-denial, and a wonderful personality.”
The separation from the Portuguese coach comes in light of the fluctuating performance of the team in the Italian league, as it ranks seventh in the table.
The 48-year-old Portuguese coach has led the Wolves in 96 games in all competitions, winning 50, drawing 19 and losing 27.
A few days ago, the name of Mauricio Sarri appeared as a prominent candidate to take over the task of coaching Roma next season.
According to the Italian newspaper “La Gazzetta dello Sport”, Sari is the preferred name for the task, as he held a meeting with Thiago Pinto and his agent, Valle Ramadani.
And competes with Massimiliano Allegri, Sarri in the training of Rome, but the first is not convinced of the project of the capitalist club.
