Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Sassuolo boss Roberto De Zerbi is ahead of Paulo Fonseca in the race for the Roma bench. A final decision is expected by Tuesday at Trigoria. Reportedly, De Zerbi is the favorite as of now because he would require less time to adapt and knows the league. Sinisa Mihajlovic is no longer an option due to his Lazio-background.
Paulo Fonseca, meanwhile, represents a foreign manager with great European experience and would come without the knowledge of the typical Roman dynamics and could have a similar effect as Rudi Garcia. For Roma, contacts with De Zerbi and Fonseca will continue until the beginning of next week to better understand who to bet on and to make the final decision.
