Roma approach Eintracht scout

Roma are reportedly looking towards current Eintracht Frankfurt chief scout Ben Manga as a replacement for departing Monchi.

It has been a revolutionary few days at Trigoria, as Coach Eusebio Di Francesco was fired on Thursday and director of sport Monchi terminated his contract by mutual consent less than 24 hours later.

Several candidates have been mentioned to replace Monchi next season, including former Roma chief Walter Sabatini and current Inter director Piero Ausilio.

According to, a new option would be Ben Manga, who is the head of scouting at Eintracht Frankfurt.

His contract with the Bundesliga outfit is due to expire at the end of the season.

Monchi told Pagine Romaniste he has “not yet decided” on his future, but it’s believed to be just a matter of time before he signs for Arsenal.
