Roma open to Montella extension

Roma could extend Vincenzo Montella's contract beyond the end of this season, confirmed director Gian Paolo Montali.

“Vincenzo's results so far are extremely positive,” said Montali after the 2-0 derby victory.

“We are talking about 10 points from four games for a debutant Coach. As with many other situations, we must evaluate his position at the end of the season.”

Montella was promoted from the youth academy after Claudio Ranieri's resignation and remains unbeaten in Serie A.

Montali also commented on the negotiations to sell the club to American investor Thomas Di Benedetto.

“The bank is examining the last paperwork and we are simply continuing to focus on the sporting affairs. In any case, the talks are at an advanced stage.”
