Official: Sousa signs for Bordeaux

Paulo Sousa is officially the new Coach of Ligue 1 side Girondins de Bordeaux, having been previously linked with the Roma job.

The Portuguese tactician put pen to paper today on a four-year contract.

“My vision of the role at Bordeaux, as with every club I have worked at, consists of creating and developing a philosophy of football and identity that reflect history and will last for the future,” he told the club website.

Sousa has coached in various countries and clubs, including Swansea, Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Basel and Fiorentina.

Sousa skips Porto-Roma for Bordeaux

Paulo Sousa will reportedly no longer be in the stands for Roma’s Champions League match with Porto, as he is ready to sign for Bordeaux.

The Portuguese tactician was expected to attend at the Estadio Do Dragao, a somewhat incongruous presence considering he has been linked with the Roma job.

However, Tuttomercatoweb suggest this evening that Sousa has pulled out of attending the Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Bordeaux confident over Sousa

Paulo Sousa will be in the stands to watch Porto-Roma on Wednesday, but Bordeaux say they are ‘optimistic’ about appointing the Portuguese Coach.

Sousa has been heavily linked with replacing Di Francesco, whose job is reportedly on the line ahead of tonight’s Champions League last-16 second leg in Portugal, but Bordeaux President Joe Grosa is confident he has got his man.

“We’re in talks and we’re optimistic,” Grosa told Canal+.

Sousa 'in pole for Roma'

Former Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa reportedly remains in pole position to replace Eusebio Di Francesco at Roma.

According to Corriere della Sport, Roma advisor Franco Baldini reached out to Sousa as early as September, whereas the Portuguese is unwilling to commit to Bordeaux until he receives a firm answer from Roma.

Sousa courted by Roma and Bordeaux

Paulo Sousa has reportedly flown to Bordeaux for a meeting with the Ligue 1 side, but Roma have him on stand-by after the derby defeat.

The Portuguese tactician has long been linked with the Roma bench, although such talk had calmed with recent good results from Eusebio Di Francesco.

Last night’s 3-0 Derby della Capitale defeat to arch rivals Lazio put everything back on the table, especially with next week’s decisive Champions League Round of 16 trip to FC Porto.

Sousa set for Bordeaux?

Former Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa is the favourite to become the next Coach of French side Bordeaux.

L’Equipe reports Sousa is the first choice to replace Ricardo Gomes, who was sacked on Tuesday after defeat to Nantes left Bordeaux 13th in Ligue 1.

The Portuguese is currently out of work after leaving Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian in October and had been linked with replacing Eusebio Di Francesco at Roma.

Sousa: Ready for Serie A return

Paulo Sousa claims he would have won trophies if Fiorentina did not sell Stefan Savic or Joaquin and that he will ‘win what I won as a player’ at the right club.

Sousa won Champions Leagues with Juventus and Borussia Dortmund as a player and has lifted titles in Hungary, Israel and Switzerland as a Coach, but the Portuguese failed to replicate that in two years at Fiorentina.

Roma line up Sousa for DiFra

Amid reports of a row between Edin Dzeko and Bryan Cristante, it’s rumoured Roma will sack Eusebio Di Francesco to bring in Paulo Sousa.

The 7-1 defeat to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia quarter-final was a devastating blow and one that seems to have sealed Di Francesco’s fate.

Although the Coach insisted he would not resign and director Monchi assured there was no intention of dismissing him, Sportitalia claim President Jim Pallotta has other plans.

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.

Sousa ready to take Roma job?

Roma could sack Eusebio Di Francesco if he doesn’t beat Genoa on Sunday, with Paulo Sousa reportedly ready to accept a six-month contract.

The tactician took them to third place in Serie A and the Champions League semi-final last season, but their form has stuttered badly this term, partly due to an injury crisis.

Despite already booking their place in the Champions League Round of 16, the Giallorossi are under pressure and widely expected to fire Di Francesco if he doesn’t change their domestic fortunes fast.
