According to Fabrizio Romano, Serie A side Fiorentina has picked Daniele de Rossi to be their next coach.
The 36-year-old AS Roma legend retired in January following a brief spell with Argentine side Boca Juniors.
Since then, he has been studying and preparing to take on his first role as a manager and following in the footsteps of his father, Alberto De Rossi, the manager of AS Roma’s youth side.
The La Viola have been struggling recently with their form under Beppe Iachini, who replaced Vincenzo Montella earlier this season.
