Champions League qualification will, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, determine if Paulo Fonseca continues at the helm of Roma.
The newspaper claims the new ownership are still not happy with the results from the Giallorossi this term and Fonseca’s job is still uncertain.
Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri have been linked with the job at the Olimpico in recent months, as the Friedkins are reportedly disappointed with the ups and downs since they took over.
Sporting director Tiago Pinto plays an important part in the future of the coach, as the owners will ask for a direct report from the Portuguese director.
Roma have only two more points than last term at this point and sit fifth in the table next to Napoli, who they face on Sunday.
Fonseca has stressed his team are improving, but the numbers say otherwise and Il Corriere dello Sport claims his future depends on a place in the Champions League to confirm his position for 2021-22.
The report claims Fonseca’s contract will automatically be renewed if the Giallorossi finish top four in the League.
