Serie A With Ball

Serie A has announced that the 2020-2021 season will begin on September 12, decision that has upset Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

With five Serie A teams still involved in Champions League and the Europa League, there is a possibility that at least one Italian team will play its last game of the 2019-2020 season on August 23.

De Laurentiis feels that having a potential pre-season of only three weeks is not long enough and he feels that the 2020-21 season should start on October 4 instead.

Roma Closing In On Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho could be returning to Serie A this summer, but his likely destination appears to be Rome and not Milan.

According to L’Equipe, AS Roma have beaten Inter Milan and have offered Mourinho a three-year contract to become their new manager this summer.

The Italian giants sacked Eusebio Di Francesco earlier this season, while Claudio Ranieri is currently in charge on an interim basis until the end of the campaign.

It has been a difficult season for Roma, who reached the Champions League semi-finals just 12 month ago. The hiring of a serial winner like Mourinho would be a major indication of the Giallorossi’s ambition and a statement of intent.
