Di Francesco renews until 2020


After a successful first season, Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco has officially renewed his contract with the club. Roma revealed the former Sassuolo tactician’s renewal on the club’s official Twitter account.

Di Francesco will receive a raise in wages as his new contract with the club will now expire in 2020. Giallorossi president James Pallotta commented on th renewal of the Roma boss to the club’s website stating:

“Last summer, when we appointed Eusebio, I went on record as saying that we wanted someone who could come in and get the very best out of our first team players and also help bring through some of our great young talent. I think it’s clear that he achieved both those objectives in his first season here as coach. It’s important to have the continuity and stability that Eusebio brings to the project and the contract extension that he has signed today is testament to our belief in his abilities to take Roma forward.”
