Gasperini drops Roma hint

Gian Piero Gasperini has hinted he could lead the new Roma next season. “There is nothing definitive right now and I won't exclude it.”

Vincenzo Montella has been in charge since Claudio Ranieri resigned, but there is no word on whether he'll remain on the bench after new patron Thomas Di Benedetto takes charge.

“Roma? I can say that for the moment, as far as I am concerned, there is nothing definitive right now,” Gasperini told Unico Grande Amore radio.

“I won't exclude something that could in prospect develop.”

Among the potential candidates to lead the revamped Roma are Chelsea's Carlo Ancelotti.

Gasperini was sacked by Genoa mid-season and replaced by Davide Ballardini, but is well known for his attacking style of football.

The Coach was asked if his past as manager of the Juventus youth team would lead to problems with the Roma faithful.

“I don't know if I could be considered liked or disliked by fans, because I want to be judged for my work.

“It is pleasing to be linked with top clubs in the media, because it means my work is having its effect, even if one can lose a bench during a season.”
