Roma are expected to announce the appointment of Zdenek Zeman as their new coach by the end of this week.

The Giallorossi are looking to fill the vacancy created by the departure of coach Luis Enrique earlier this month.

Czech Zeman, who confirmed on Wednesday he is in advanced talks with Roma over the position, is set to sign a one-year contract with the Giallorossi outfit.

"We will soon make official our new coach,"

Roma's club administrator Claudio Fenucci said to Corriere dello Sport. "Then we will begin to build the team that we hope will give great satisfaction to our fans this year."

Roma endured a disappointing campaign under Luis Enrique and finished outside of the European places in seventh.

The vastly-experienced Zeman, 65, has already coached Roma once in his long career, from 1997 until 1999, and last season guided Pescara to promotion to Serie A in his first year at the club.

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
