Former Chelsea, Leicester City and Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri has said he will leave his role as Roma head coach at the end of the season.
The Italian took over at the Stadio Olimpico in March after being sacked by Fulham in February.
The 67-year-old managed Roma from 2009-2011 and began his playing career there in 1973.
On Friday he said: "I came to Roma because my reaction to getting the call from the club, as a Roma fan, was one of excitement and eagerness to help.
"My job here runs until the end of the season. When these three games are over, my work here will be over."
Ranieri has won just four of his nine games in charge at Roma during this spell, with the club sixth in Serie A, three points behind fourth-placed Atalanta in the race to secure Champions League football for next season.
Ranieri, whose greatest managerial achievement came in winning the Premier League with Leicester in 2016 has also managed Inter Milan, Valencia and Napoli.
On Sunday, Roma welcome Juventus to the Stadio Olimpico, with Massimiliano Allegri's side having just wrapped up their eighth successive title.
The last time Roma finished outside the top four in Serie A was in the 2012-13 season.
