Sousa or Conte for Roma job?

Tonight’s 7-1 humiliation at the hands of Fiorentina prompted reports Roma could sack Eusebio Di Francesco for Paulo Sousa or Antonio Conte.

The Giallorossi were already 4-1 down in the Coppa Italia quarter-final when Edin Dzeko saw red for dissent.

Federico Chiesa went on to complete his hat-trick, with Giovanni Simeone’s late brace and Marco Benassi also on target.

It was such a shocking defeat, in the tournament that Roma had the most realistic hope of winning, that it could spell the end for Coach Di Francesco.

This also came just days after the Lupi fumbled a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Atalanta in Serie A.

According to Sportitalia, former Fiorentina Coach Sousa is the option available to take over right now, whereas Conte could be an option given a little more time to work out the personal terms.

Roma have a huge showdown with Milan coming up for fourth place and the Champions League spots this weekend.
