Daniele De Rossi did not hesitate in signing on with Roma in the moment of need as Jose Mourinho departed the club on Tuesday morning.

The inexperienced young coach will take over the managerial position until the end of the season, trying to lead Roma to a Champions League spot in the Serie A table.

Negotiations with De Rossi did not take long at all, reports Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport.

De Rossi immediately agreed to a 6-month contract until June.

The legendary Roma captain is said to have accepted the minimum salary without any kind of intervention on the part of his agent.

Instead, De Rossi specifically asked for a bonus at the end of the season in case of a successful achievement of the pre-established objectives such as Champions League qualification.
