After the departure of José Mourinho, AS Roma appointed Daniele De Rossi as their interim manager, a decision that quickly proved to be inspired.

Under his leadership, the forty-year-old coach has successfully revitalized the team, steering them back on course at Stadio Olimpico. Currently, Roma remains a strong contender for a Champions League spot, trailing just four points behind Bologna in the league standings, albeit having played one game more than their rivals.

In European competitions, Roma has been experiencing a strong run, much to the dismay of clubs like Feyenoord, who were eliminated by Roma earlier this year in the Europa League. Roma's victory over the Dutch club propelled them into the round of 16, and they are poised to secure a spot in the semi-finals if they can overcome AC Milan in their upcoming match.

This resurgence under De Rossi has greatly benefitted his standing within the club, affirming his role in Roma's long-term strategy. The club has praised his impact, noting on their website, "The positive impact of his leadership is evident. Daniele leads with respect and courage." This style of management is said to reflect the core values of the club and resonate well with the sentiments of both the city and Roma supporters.

While the details of De Rossi's new contract remain under wraps, the anticipation builds as the club promises to disclose further information soon. His tenure as interim coach, coupled with the team's recent performances, may well secure him a more permanent managerial position, reflecting both his legacy as a former player and his potential as a coach.
