Fly Higher Aeroplanino!

Vincenzo Montella is the new coach of AS Roma. Taking over for Claudio Ranieri, who tendered his resignation yesterday, Montella is charged with finishing the season strongly. To me, this means a 4th place finish. Realistically, Roma will not make a title push. Thus, they must do anything they can to make the Champions League under Montella's tutelage.

At age 36, L'Aeroplanino becomes one of the youngest coaches in Europe. I'm wondering if the directors considered a player-manager situation?! If not, we can still hope Montella will celebrate down the sidelines in his traditional airplane style when goals are scored.
