Roma have confirmed the appointment of Zdenek Zeman on a two-year deal.
Zeman, 65, managed the Giallorossi between 1997 and 1999 and now returns after having led Pescara to Serie A in his first season with the club.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Roma announces that it has signed with Zdenek Zeman an economic contract to become head coach of the first team.
"The agreement, lasting two years, is effective from July 1, 2012, and expires on June 30, 2013, and provides for the recognition of a wage in line with the benchmarks in the market.
"Mister Zeman will be supported for the duration of his office by assistant coach Vincenzo Cangelosi, technical assistant Giacomo Modica and athletic trainer Roberto Ferola."
Zeman succeeds Luis Enrique, who left the club last month after finishing seventh in his debut season in Italy.
