Manchester United’s 6-2 draw against Roma has led the Italian club to announce that they will part ways with their coach.

The Roma issued a statement this morning announcing that Fonseca will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Fonseca will remain in charge of this week’s second leg.

The statement by Roma Chairman Dan Friedkin said: “We wish him well in his future endeavors and know that he will be a great asset everywhere.”

After losing 6-2 to United, Roma lost 2-0 to Sampdoria at the weekend.

Fonseca’s imminent exit shows that the Italian side have no chance of breaking their semi-final deficit in this week’s second leg.

The Roma have fallen to seventh place in Serie A and are likely to miss next season’s European qualifiers.

United just too good

United scored five unanswered goals against Roma in the second half to secure a spot in the Europa League final.

The Roma started well in the first 45 minutes before United moved up a gear.

Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes were all individually and collectively outstanding.

While Roma’s dismissal from Fonseca wasn’t entirely due to the United States’ defeat, it clearly played a role.

Reaching the finals could have bought Fonseca more time and possibly saved his job. Unfortunately he met a far superior team.

He will try to bow down at a high level and try to save some pride against United this week. It could potentially inspire its players.

But United could also get into turmoil again as Fonseca’s Roma are now a lame duck just playing and waiting for the season to end.

Chances are Fonseca could end up in the Premier League. TMW reported last week that Arsenal had contacted him.
