Fonseca refuses to resign following the Sampdoria defeat

Tue 04 May 2021 | 9:47

The under-fire Roma boss is reportedly not interested in stepping down from his role.

Roma

were defeated 2-0 in their Serie A clash against

Sampdoria

on Sunday. Not being able to win any of their last six matches, the Giallorossi have suffered for form lately. They were crushed with a humiliating 6-2 defeat against

Manchester United

in their Europa League clash last week and they are set to meet the Red Devils again on Thursday. According to reports from Italian sources,

Paulo Fonseca

and his agent have met the club's chiefs

Ryan Friedkin

and

Tiago Pinto

yesterday. The Portuguese coach has insisted that he doesn’t want to resign but knows his time at the Italian club will be over at the end of the season. However, according to

Il Messaggero

, the club could consider sacking Fonseca if they suffer another embarrassing defeat against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team on Thursday. According to

La Gazzetta dello Sport

,

Maurizio Sarri

is the favorite candidate to take charge at the Stadio Olimpico next season.
