The Portuguese manager was fired by AS Roma on Tuesday morning, in what came as a shock to fans and the football world. The 60-year-old will depart the Italian club immediately with the rest of his backroom staff.

However, according to influential journalist Fabrizio Romano who’s knowledgeable with the matter, the club’s owners have touted De Rossi as their top choice for the vacant job.

Following the sack of Jose Mourinho, thousands of fans, pundits and football insiders have expressed their thoughts, with many linking him to jobs at his former clubs, notably Chelsea.

It’s no doubt that Mourinho is indeed one of the world’s greatest ever managers. However, it remains to be seen what the 60-year-old’s next destination will be.
