Roma admit to Montella interest

Roma have admitted that Catania boss Vincenzo Montella is on their shortlist of candidates to replace Luis Enrique.

The Spaniard quit the capital club on Sunday just a season after taking over from Montella at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Montella is a tactician who we are thinking about,” sporting director Walter Sabatini noted.

“He’s a Coach who did well with us last season and also with Catania this, but he has a contract with them.

“We’ll ask for permission to speak with him, but he is only one of the contenders we have.”

Montella, who replaced Claudio Ranieri for a short time in Rome during the 2010-11 campaign, is tied to the Elefanti until June 2013.

He admitted last night that he is tempted by a return to Roma.
