Di Francesco: “Roma? A lot could be said about the second season”.

Former Roma and former Sampdoria manager Eusebio Di Francesco appeared live on SportItalia this evening and was asked about his adventure in the Italian capital.

The ex-Sassuolo boss was sacked by Roma in March 2019 — less than one year after having reached the semifinals of the Champions League with the club.

“My adventure in Rome? There’s many things that could be said about the second season,” he revealed.

“But in the end, I take full responsibility. Sampdoria? Ferrero enchanted me a bit, I was naive. I wanted to get back to work on the pitch but it was too soon”.

On both occasions after having been sacked by the Giallorossi and Samp, Di Francesco was replaced by former Roma and Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri.
