Roma coach Luis Enrique says he will quit the Serie A club after the final game against Cesena on Sunday.
A report by the Italian news agency ANSA says the Spanish coach informed his players of the decision at the end of training Thursday.
Enrique, whose only other coaching experience was at Barcelona's reserve team, took charge of Roma in the offseason. Roma had a disappointing campaign this season and the highest it can finish is seventh.
Roma has not yet announced Enrique's departure that marks the 20th coaching change in the Italian league this season.
The previous Serie A record for changes was 15 in 1951-52.
