Serie A, Di Francesco sacked from Verona after three defeats in the first three days and the team in penultimate place in the standings
Hellas Verona’s start to the championship was certainly not the best. In the first three days the Scala have collected three defeats against Sassuolo, Inter and Bologna with only three goals scored and seven conceded. Although Serie A is still in the starting phase, the patron Maurizio Setti has chosen to sack the coach Eusebio di Francesco.
Verona, Di Francesco exonerated: Tudor will replace him
“Hellas Verona FC announces that it has relieved Eusebio Di Francesco from the position of coach of the First Team. – reads the official note – The Gialloblù Club thanks Mr. Di Francesco and his staff, in the persons of Francesco Tomei, Stefano Romano, Giancarlo Marini and Franco Giammartino, for the activity carried out up to now “. Igor Tudor should sit on the Verona bench. The signing will arrive in the next few hours, as soon as the coach terminates his contract with Juventus when he was Andrea Pirlo’s assistant.
The last few years have not been particularly lucky for Di Francesco. The Roman coach last season had been sacked from Cagliari after only three wins in twenty-three days. In 2019-20, however, he had terminated his contract with Sampdoria in last place and with only three points in seven days.
