«On behalf of myself and the entire AS Roma team, we welcome Monchi to our family and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as we begin an exciting new era at the club,» said Roma president James Pallotta.

«I couldn’t be happier with this appointment as Monchi is widely regarded as one of the best minds in world football.»

A statement from Roma, who sit second in Serie A, 11 points behind Juventus before Monday’s league fixture at Pescara, said: «The Spaniard — who will start work immediately — has signed a four-year contract, with an option for a fifth year, with the Giallorossi.»
