Daniele De Rossi becomes in-season head coach with highest points average in Europe

Andy Mattioli

Daniele De Rossi continues to impress since his surprise appointment in January in place of former Roma manager Jose Mourinho.

The Roma legend – with only an unsuccessful spell with SPAL in Serie B the previous year – was able to slot in and turn things around, propelling the Giallorossi to a strong reaction both in Europa League and Serie A.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, De Rossi’s in-season heroics have not gone unnoticed on the European stage.

The newspaper states that De Rossi is the in-season head coach with the highest points average collected in Europe so far – 2.44 points per game with a 77.8% win rate in 13 games.

With De Rossi on the bench, the Giallorossi scored 23 goals in his nine in Serie A, with the highest scoring percentage (25%), better than any other team in the league.
