Roma considering Sarri and Allegri as replacements for Fonseca

Paulo Fonseca-AS Roma

Paulo Fonseca has been under much pressure of late.

AS Roma are said to be looking for a life without their current manager Paulo Fonseca following some disappointing results of late.

According to reports, Ex Juventus managers Maurizio Sarri and Massimiliano Allegri are leading the line to be the next manager of Giallorossi.

Fonseca has received much stick for back to back defeats – first against rivals Lazio and then Coppa Italia elimination from the hands of newly promoted Spezia.

Roma are currently fourth in the Scudetto race, a point ahead of defending champions Juventus.

Sarri has been without a job since he got fired from Juve at the end of the last season. The former Napoli manager lifted the Serie A title in his only season at Turin but failed miserably in the Champions League. Sarri also had a similar spell at Chelsea.

Allegri has been linked with a move to Chelsea as one of the possible replacements for Frank Lampard. The Italian gaffer had been also linked with PSG job before Mauricio Pochettino took the reigns.

The former AC Milan gaffer is known for his dream spell at Juve where he continuously won the Serie A titles, leaving no room for the rivals. Besides, he also helped Old Lady reach the finals of the Champions League twice.

It remains to be seen whether Giallorossi wants to replace Fonseca with immediate effect as his performances have been fairly good this season bar the two defeats.
