Within 3 months of replacing Jose Mourinho, Daniele De Rossi’s contract at Roma is extended.

Roma Extends Daniele De Rossi’s Contract

ROME (AP) — Daniele De Rossi’s contract at Roma has been extended after just three months on the job, the club owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin announced Thursday.

The Friedkins expressed their delight in a statement, saying, “After meeting yesterday afternoon with Daniele De Rossi, we are delighted to announce he will continue as head coach of AS Roma after this season and for the foreseeable future. In his short tenure as head coach, the positive impact that his leadership has brought to the entire club has told its own story.”

Taking over for the fired Jose Mourinho in January with a contract through the end of the season, De Rossi, a former Roma captain, has made significant strides with the team. When De Rossi stepped in, Roma was in ninth place and at risk of missing out on qualifying for Europe. However, under De Rossi’s leadership, Roma has climbed to fifth place and is now in contention for a Champions League spot.

In just 16 games across all competitions under De Rossi, Roma has won 11, drawn three, and lost two. The only defeat under De Rossi in Serie A came against Italian leader Inter Milan, with the other loss being a 1-0 defeat to Brighton in the Europa League round of 16 second leg, following a 4-0 victory in the opening leg.

The announcement of De Rossi’s contract extension comes ahead of a crucial Europa League quarterfinal second leg against AC Milan, with Roma holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg. The Friedkins emphasized their excitement about building a long-term project with Daniele, with further details set to follow in the coming days.

It is clear that the impact of Daniele De Rossi on AS Roma has been substantial, and fans can look forward to the continued development and success under his leadership.
