Fiorentina are reportedly keen on giving former Roma man Daniele De Rossi his first coaching role.
According to Corriere dello Sport, De Rossi is among the names being considered to replace Fiorentina boss Beppe Iachini.
In turn, the 36-year-old likes the club’s board, in particular sporting director Daniele Prade after they worked together at Roma.
However, unlike what Sky Sport Italia reported last night, the newspaper writes he is likelier to take over as Primavera coach, a post which remains vacant.
De Rossi’s father Alberto has been in charge of Roma’s Primavera team since 2004.
The ex-Italy midfielder retired from professional football in January while playing in Argentina for Boca Juniors.
