It would be a great place to land, and he would easily be able to carry on the excellent work of his predecessor. He’s got a crude deal with Shakhtar’s entire ordeal.

He appears interested in staying abroad, but one has to wonder if the opportunity for him to lead a top-tier side in Serie A will emerge sooner than expected.
