Former Roma manager and current Frosinone boss Eusebio Di Francesco reflected on his turbulent second year with the Giallorossi.

After leading Roma to a historic Champions League semifinal, Di Francesco was unable to lift the team in his second season and was ultimately sacked in the early part of 2019, with Claudio Ranieri slotting in as interim manager.

“I made so many friends and had so many wonderful times at Roma,” Di Francesco said in an interview with Sky Sport ahead of tomorrow night’s Serie A affair between Frosinone and Roma.

“I am very attached to Roma for what they have given me and the little I have given them,” he added.

“I’m sorry for how I handled my second season there, when we were fifth and in the round of 16 of the Champions League. I was sent home also because I wasn’t able to handle the situation mentally as best as I could.”
