Paulo Fonseca will leave the Roma bench at the end of the season. The Giallorossi club formalizes the divorce from the Portuguese coach. “On behalf of everyone at AS Roma, we would like to thank Paulo Fonseca for the hard work and leadership shown during these two years,” said Dan Friedkin, club president. “Paulo has led the team through several challenges, including the pandemic since Covid is a change of ownership, and it has done so with generosity, fairness and great character. We wish him all the best for his future endeavors and we are confident that he will represent fantastic added value wherever he goes “. Tiago Pinto, General Manager of the Area Sportiva, added: “I would like to thank Paulo for the work done at the Club in the last two seasons.” “Even if the results have not always emerged on the pitch, we are aware of the various positive elements he has left us and which will continue to help us in our growth, like the many talented young people he has encouraged and improved and our progress in the Europa League this season. At Roma we are trying to build a path to success and I am sure Paulo has played his role in this process. ”Conseca signed a two-year contract with the Giallorossi in summer 2019, taking over from Shakhtar Donetsk, where he won the Cup and Championship in each of the three seasons in which he led the Ukrainian club. Previously, he had coached Pacos Ferreira, Braga and Porto. “In these two years we have experienced ups and downs, but I have always given my best for this club and for this city , which welcomed me very well, “said Fonseca. “I want to thank all the Roma fans, the people who work with us in Trigoria, the players, those who have supported us on this path, in particular Dan and Ryan Friedkin for their continued support since they arrived and Tiago Pinto, a excellent professional, to whom I wish the best in his path in this club. We still have very important games to win this season and we will give our best as always. Thank you Rome “. Conseca and his coaching staff will continue to lead the First Team until the end of the current season.
