Spaletti Backs De Francesco or Montella to be His Successor at Roma
Luciano Spalletti believes Sassuolo coach Eusebio Di Francesco should be appointed as his replacement at Roma.
Spalletti’s departure from Roma was confirmed on Tuesday, with the Italian having been strongly linked with the vacancy at Inter.
Spalletti suggested Sassuolo’s Di Francesco or Vincenzo Montella – who signed a new two-year deal at AC Milan on Tuesday – should succeed him at the Stadio Olimpico, but would not be drawn on his own links to Inter.
“A message for Di Francesco? But has Di Francesco been announced? Is this a trap?” Spalletti told reporters.
“I hope one of Di Francesco or Montella is the next Roma coach, because they know the environment and they have the human qualities you need, as well as the coaching skills.”
