After weeks of speculation the wait is finally over. It's official.

Rudi Garcia is AS Roma's new manager. The confirmation has come via the official website.

A.S. Roma S.p.A. announces that it has reached an agreement with RUDI GARCIA, who will become the head coach of the first team.

The two year contract will be formalized and deposited in the upcoming days.

The President of AS Roma, James Pallotta, stated: "We are very excited and confident that Rudi Garcia is the right coach for AS Roma. He is a proven winner with a great football mind who we believe fits in perfectly with our vision for the future."

"We welcome Rudi Garcia to AS Roma. He will continue to develop our existing talent base while giving us the best opportunity to win now. We are looking forward to this season more than ever", said AS Roma CEO, Italo Zanzi.

Now that the club has a manager, let's get on with the mercato madness and prepare for the upcoming season. Whether Rudi is the man for Roma no one knows and it will be unfair to write him off without even giving him a chance. So let's sit back and welcome him to our beloved club and give him an entire season before we pass a judgement on him.

Benvenuto Rudi.

Forza Roma.
