AS Roma Women head coach Alessandro Spugna extends contract!

AS Roma have announced that Roma Women head coach Alessandro Spugna has signed a new contract.

Spugna, 49, has agreed an extension with the Giallorosse that now runs until June 30, 2024.

Since joining Roma Women at the start of the 2021-22 season, Spugna has guided the side to the final of the Coppa Italia, a victory in the Supercoppa, and a second-place finish in Serie A – earning Roma a place in the UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.

“I would like to thank the club for this contract extension, and the faith they have shown in me to continue the work we are doing,” Spugna said.

“Both myself and the club are keen to continue the great progress that began last season, progress that has already brought us significant results.”

“With the ambitions we have here we all want to reach some big targets, and that’s why I will give everything I have until those goals are reached.”

Spugna’s side currently sit top of Serie A heading into the winter break, with a three-point lead over reigning champions Juventus – the side they beat in the final of the Supercoppa at the start of November.

The Giallorosse have also reached the last-eight of the UEFA Women’s Champions League, after gaining 13 points from a possible 18 in the group stage.

They will discover their quarterfinal opponents in February 2023.

“This contract extension for Alessandro is the natural result of the fine job he has done up to now, one navigated with great focus and professionalism – and superb results on the pitch too,” said the club’s Head of Women’s Football, Betty Bavagnoli.

“Alessandro has shown his passion, ambition and aptitude for the job and has put all of those qualities to work for a team that wants to achieve big things.”
