Spalletti: I will remain at Roma
Luciano Spalletti has confirmed he is to continue as Roma coach.
The Italian has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, who are looking for a successor to Claudio Ranieri, this summer.
The former Chelsea manager was sacked last month and replaced on a temporary basis by Ciro Ferrara.
And his permanent replacement will not be Spalletti, who is under contract with I Giallorossi until June 2011, and announced after last night's meeting with Roma president Rosella Sensi his decision to remain with the Eternal City outfit.
"The meeting went well," said Spalletti. "We are working for the good of Roma. "I will remain here because I want to and there's no truth in reports claiming that I am not motivated or that I'm unhappy to remain at Roma."
Roma failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, but their sixth-placed finish in Serie A at least assured them of a spot in the UEFA Europa League next season.
