Roma general director Franco Baldini has confirmed that the club will unveil Zdenek Zeman as new coach in the coming days, as they look to replace Luis Enrique.
Zeman is set to sign a one-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico, for what will be his second spell at the club after a two-year stint in the late nineties.
"We have been able to meet Zeman and follow the work we had done in recent days,'' Baldini told Corriere dello Sport.
"I can say that even though there are still a few details to discuss, there is optimism that the deal will be completed in the best possible way. I think we can exclude any surprises and I believe that we will be able to complete the deal in the next few days.''
Roma endured a disappointing 2011-12 season, finishing seventh and out of the European places for next season, leading to the departure of Luis Enrique after just one season.
Czech boss Zeman joins after guiding Pescara to the Serie A for the first time since 1993, in his first year at the club.
