Roma sack coach Eusebio Di Francesco after Champions League elimination at the hands of Porto

Italian Serie A club, AS Roma, have sacked coach Eusebio Di Francesco on Thursday, one day after they knocked out of the Champions League by Porto.

“Di Francesco has left the club with immediate effect,” the club said in a statement.

“The club would like to thank Eusebio for his work during his time at AS Roma and wish him success in the future.”

Roma lost 3-1 at Porto in the second leg of their round of 16 tie on Wednesday and were knocked out of the Champions League 4-3 on aggregate, with a decisive goal coming from a penalty three minutes from the end of extra time.

Italian media are already reporting that Claudio Ranieri, who was fired by English Premier League side Fulham last week, is a possible replacement.
