Former Roma defender Christian Panucci could be the next coach of the giallorossi. He would be replacing Di Francesco until the end of the season.
There could be some important moves in the club of Trigoria. If Di Francesco‘s group will fail to qualify to the Champions League quarter-finals, the Italian coach could be sacked. The name linked to the Roma bench is Christian Panucci.
As reported by the well-informed Italian outlet ForzaRoma.info, Panucci could temporarily replace Eusebio Di Francesco. He would lead the giallorossi until June, the end of the 2018–19 campaign. Reportedly, Roma are still assessing the feasibility of bringing Maurizio Sarri to the Italian capital.
Although Panucci is currently in charge of the Albanian national team, his contract is set to expire on November but, apparently, the parties could easily find an agreement to terminate their professional relationship.
