Barcelona B Coach Luis Enrique has confirmed “contact with the Roma directors. It's an attractive proposal.”
The Spaniard is the hot favourite to take over from Vincenzo Montella when new President Thomas Di Benedetto is put in charge.
“I have had contact with the Roma directors. It's an attractive proposal,” Luis Enrique declared late Sunday evening.
“I know that they have several options at their disposal, as have I. Before making a decision, I must carefully ponder every aspect.
“Could the Barcelona model be exported? Yes, I think so. You just need to have the right profile of players.”
There are other Roma candidates, most notably Olympique Marseille boss Didier Deschamps.
