The former Spain midfielder was pictured earlier this month on the Serie A club’s website wearing a Roma t-shirt but bureaucracy held up the official announcement.

In a statement, the club said Luis Enrique would receive a gross salary of 2.9 million euros ($4.16 million) in 2011-12 and 3.1 million euros the following season, with possible bonuses on top.

The 41-year-old, who played for Real Madrid and Barcelona, has previously worked as coach of Barcelona’s B team.

Roma, who finished sixth last season under new Catania coach Vincenzo Montella, are in the process of being bought by an American consortium.
