Paulo Fonseca hints at his intentions

Saturday night’s heavy defeat at home to Torino seems to have wiped out even the last chances of Stefano Pioli’s reappointment at AC Milan: the general impression è that the last league match against Salernitana, scheduled for Sunday, May 26, will be the last on the bench for the coach of the Scudetto won two years ago. In his place, the number one favorite è Paulo Fonseca.

The former coach of Roma, in Italy between 2019 and 2021 before a break period which è was followed by the parenthesis, not yet closed, at Lille, overcame in recent days the names of other possible candidates and speaking with French journalists, on the eve of Lille-Nizza of Ligue 1, hinted at his intentions.

"My choice? I will make it after the last league match but I have to think about it carefully,” the Portuguese coach said in a press conference.

I have to be honest, the possibility of participating in the Champions League with Lille (the club from the North of France is not yet arithmetically qualified) è is tempting, but I will take into account all options".

"I want to continue my career by taking a step forward, we’ll see if it will beà here or elsewhere" further explained Fonseca, who on the Roma bench collected a fifth and a seventh place finish, pushing himself to the Europa League semifinals (defeated in the double-header against Manchester United) in the 2020/2021 season.
