Monchi Leaves Roma Amid Arsenal Links

Roma have announced that sporting director Monchi has left the club.

The 50-year-old departs the Italian capital after just under two years in the role.

His exit comes only a day after head coach Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked in the wake of Roma’s Champions League last-16 exit to Porto.

Monchi was appointed on a four-year deal in April 2017 after a hugely successful spell at Sevilla, where he helped the club to win five Europa Leagues and two Copas del Rey over 11 seasons.

However, he has come in for criticism for Roma’s recruitment policy over the last year in particular and reportedly clashed with fans following the loss in Porto this week.

Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are among the teams linked with a move for the former goalkeeper, who spent his whole playing career with Sevilla before retiring in 1999.
