Fonseca is doing a good campaign on the bench of the Rome, which is trying to qualify for the Champions League. The future of the Portuguese coach is up in the air and does not depend solely on whether or not the team gets into the next edition of the top continental competition at the end of the season.
Roma are fourth in series A and have everything to face to qualify for the round of 16 of the Europa League (0-2 against Braga in the first leg). Fonseca’s work is highly valued abroad and Il Corriere dello Sport points out that Real Madrid has him on its agenda. Also Benfica.
In any case, his future will be decided at the end of the season, although in his contract two years ago when he signed there is a clause that says that the renewal is automatic. Symptomatic is the fact that a Roma player of the year 2019 said then that “Fonseca will be Real Madrid coach in three years.” This anonymous player was impressed by the Portuguese coach’s working methods.
