Roma owners reflect on Daniele De Rossi’s future

Andy Mattioli

Daniele De Rossi has caught Roma and its fans by surprise through the initial weeks of his tenure as interim head coach.

After taking over from Jose Mourinho in mid-January, De Rossi has gone on to win 7 games for the Giallorossi, plus 1 draw (with Feyenoord) and 1 loss to Inter Milan.

The team feels revitalized under the new manager and Roma were able to drag themselves out of a difficult position in the league’s standings.

According to Corriere della Sera, Roma owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin – although initially optimistic about De Rossi’s appointment – did not foresee the club legend to do so well within such a short amount of time.

The newspaper claims that the Friedkins have already begun to think about a long-term future involving De Rossi as the team’s manager.
