AS Roma are proud to announce that Betty Bavagnoli will become the club’s new Head of Women’s Football.
Bavagnoli has agreed to take on the senior role, on an initial contract that runs until 30 June 2024.
Bavagnoli - the first and, to date, only head coach in Roma Women history - took the reins when the side was officially formed in the summer of 2018.
She guided the Giallorosse for a total of 76 games over the course of the last three seasons, culminating in Sunday’s historic Coppa Italia victory.
“I am grateful to Roma for having selected me for this role,” Bavagnoli said.
“After three amazing seasons as a coach, I felt that the moment had arrived to start a different chapter.
“Roma is known around the world for the incredible enthusiasm of the club’s fans and the sense of belonging it creates: for me it is an honour to be able to try and pass on those values and create a platform to enable a new generation of young girls to dream of representing this club.”
In her new role, Bavagnoli will be responsible for overseeing all aspect of the women’s division within the club.
“I would like to thank Betty for all her work as a coach over the last three seasons – the job she has done to improve our girls has delivered obvious results,” said Tiago Pinto, the club’s General Manager.
“After winning the Coppa Italia, we are pleased to be able to continue working together and entrust her, her leadership and her experience with overseeing the continued development of this department.
“In her new role we are certain she will help us in reaching our objectives: to continue to fight to win trophies on all fronts, and to cultivate a strong team identity.”
