Roma Will Name Spalletti Coach Tomorrow Morning

Word is starting to spread, come sunrise, Roma will have a new head coach. Luciano Spalletti is expected to sign an 18 month deal to lead Roma and will be in Trigoria as soon as Thursday.

Having Luciano Spalletti fly all the way from Firenze to Miami to negotiate and sign a contract to become Roma's next manager is either stereotypically American or Italian. American in the 'you do what I say approach' or Italian in the 'none of this makes sense, but we're all excited' sort of way. In any event, the moment we've been losing sleep over for the past 72 hours or so seems all but a certainty once the sun rises tomorrow morning.

According to Sky Sport Italia, and really anyone who has been watching this with baited breath since the weekend, Spalletti is in Miami and has, or soon will, put pen to paper on an 18-month contract, tying him to the Roma bench through the end of the 2017 season.

While he may or may not be bringing Domenico Criscito with him, this much is certain, Garcia is 99.99% done as Roma's head man, as Alberto De Rossi will reportedly take the helm during Wednesday's training session, which, again, why fly Spalletti all the way to Miami and waste 48 hours.

But I digress. If you're wondering my reaction, it's something akin to this:

Again, props to ever made that gif, its the bee's knees. We'll have all the particulars, as well as a legitimate and well-thought out farewell to Rudi as soon as possible.

In the meantime, rejoice!
