Reporter Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia says Daniele De Rossi could start his coaching career by taking on the job at Fiorentina.
The World Cup winner has already said that he wants to follow his father Alberto’s footsteps and wants to go into management. For many years his father has been the coach of the Roma youth team.
De Rossi retired in January after encounters at Roma and Boca Juniors and will turn 37 later this month.
In December Vincenzo Montella was replaced by Beppe Iachini, he is struggling to hold them out of the drop zone, Fiorentina is searching for a new coach.
Luciano Spalletti who is still under contract with Inter until June 2021 and his salary could also be an issue, the player was listed as a potential applicant for the job.
In the summer of 2019, Fiorentina approached De Rossi to play for them when his contract with Roma has not been renewed. Rossi would certainly be intriguing.
It would be a different situation as a coach, while he didn’t feel ready to play with his beloved Roma for another Serie A club.
