Serie A side Roma have revealed that they offered boss Luis Enrique a new contract after the 3-0 loss at Fiorentina.
“People have been saying that we have only just recently proposed an extension,” director general Franco Baldini stated.
“That’s not true. We actually offered him a new agreement after Florence. We wanted to show our faith in him during a difficult time.”
The Giallorossi lost badly in Tuscany at the start of December in a game where they actually had three men sent off.
However, since then, the Stadio Olimpico outfit have won three and drawn one of their next four League games.
Enrique was appointed as Roma’s new boss in the summer following his move from Barcelona B. At the time he signed a two-year contract, with an option for a third.
It’s believed that Roma now want to tie down the former Real Madrid winger until June 2015.
