Catania have admitted that Roma target Vincenzo Montella wants to leave the Stadio Massimino.
Montella joined the Elefanti last summer from Roma when he signed a two-year deal, but the capital club now want him back after Luis Enrique’s resignation.
“The Coach wants to make a run for it,” Catania President Antonino Pulvirenti stated. “You can’t stop the wind…”
Reports suggest that the former Sampdoria striker has already said goodbye to his squad in Sicily. He could fly into the capital as soon as this evening.
With Montella on his way out, Catania have been paired with Delio Rossi – the man Fiorentina sacked recently after his touchline altercation with Adem Ljajic.
“I still haven’t considered anyone,” Pulvirenti stated when asked about the possible new Coach. “Saying that, Delio Rossi is a serious guy who can coach anyone.”
