Big breaking news being reported by all at the moment: Luis has told the group that he's standing down. A stand up man, but the wrong piece for the puzzle.

"I’m going. It is a great defeat that I was unable to convey my ideas," Enrique reportedly told the assembled group. "I'm leaving Roma because I could not give 100 per cent. I made some choices and mistakes, I'm sorry."

Update No. 1: No Update. Still no official word, but it appears to be a formality at this point, simply awaiting Luis to step before a microphone or a Twitter machine. Assuming they have those somewhere.

Completely useless video of his supposed internal resignation here.

Update No. 2: Bupkis. Though early rumors of Lu'Rique to be approached by Genoa, which would be utterly perfect for him and likely the type of place he should've begun his top flight career.

Update No. 3: Maarten Stekelnburg's v-neck is so huge, one has to wonder if it's representative of the immense smile on the news that he might have a serviceable defense in front of him. A tube top might represent the appointment of Zeman.

Update No. 4: Is this official? Official enough for me. Presser tomorrow before Cesena.
