thumbnail Hello,

With the Giallorossi in real danger of failing to qualify for the Champions League, the 41-year-old Spanish coach is rumoured to be heading for the exit door

Roma boss Luis Enrique has admitted that he has no "definitive position" on his future with the club, revealing that it will only be decided at the end of the season.

The former Barcelona B team coach only arrived in the Italian capital last summer but speculation is rife that he could be forced out in the summer. The Giallorossi currently lie seventh in Serie A, four points off a Champions League place.

Roma director Franco Baldini hinted after Saturday night's draw with Napoli that Luis Enrique will be given another year, while Rodrigo Taddei insisted the Spaniard retains the full support of the players; but the man himself is unsure whether he will still be at the Stadio Olimpico next season.

“I do not have a definitive position on my future," the 41-year-old coach told Sky Sport Italia. "As far as I am concerned, Roma’s future is the next game with Chievo [on Tuesday] and I will be here at least until the end of the season.

"We’ll talk it over, so the club and I will decide my future at the end of the season."

Luis Enrique did claim, though, that Roma had proven themselves to be a "real team" in snatching a 2-2 draw with Napoli courtesy of a late goal from Fabio Simplicio.

“We have put in some performances that weren’t up to the task, but football is like that and we had a great first half," the former Blaugrana midfielder argued. "The second had a psychological block, which was natural in the current situation.

“But I want to praise everyone, even those who did not play, because we proved we are a real team. It’s a shame we didn’t get the victory, but a point each is the right result."

Roma's next outing against Chievo kicks off at 18.00CET.
