Roma 'contacted Pellegrini'

Roma’s search for a new Coach continues, as Zdenek Zeman and Andre Villas Boas are joined by Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini, confirmed his agent.

“Roma contacted us to understand the situation,” agent Jesus Martinez told Onda Cera Malaga.

“I must remind everyone that Pellegrini has a contract and wants to respect it. There is nothing more to add right now.”

The club needs to find a tactician after Luis Enrique declared he would not stay longer than one year at the Olimpico.

Zeman could make a return to Rome after helping Pescara to promotion from Serie B, while AVB is looking for work since he was fired by Chelsea.

Another alternative from La Liga is Athletic Bilbao boss Marcelo

Bielsa.

Vincenzo Montella was the favourite choice, but Catania have refused to release him from his contract.
