Di Francesco nearing the sack, Ranieri is ready

John Solano

After hours of reflection, Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport reports that Roma are strongly leaning towards sacking Eusebio Di Francesco. Despite leading training today, the club is more inclined towards changing managers and the first name on the list is Claudio Ranieri. The return of the former Premier League champion could come within the next few hours as the sides eye an agreement on a contract.
