Ex-Roma boss Rudi Garcia sacked by Al-Nassr

RomaPress Staff

Former Roma manager Rudi Garcia is officially out at Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

The Riyadh-based outfit announced this afternoon the Frenchman has left the club by mutual agreement after eight months in charge. He leaves the club barely three months after they announced the high profile signing of free agent Cristiano Ronaldo to a multi-year contract.

Garcia came under fire amidst rumors of a poor relationship with the Portuguese megastar coupled with the team’s 0-0 draw last Sunday against Al-Fayha which dented their league title hopes.

The 59 year-old spent two and a half years with the Giallorossi from 2013 until 2016 followed by stints at Marseille and Lyon.
