Roma sack Eusebio Di Francesco: Giallorossi dismiss manager after Champions League exit

Claudio Ranieri has returned for a second spell as Roma manager

However this season the club have really struggled for form and they are now fifth in Serie A and on Wednesday were knocked out of the Champions League by Porto.

The decisive goal came in the 117th minute, when Alex Telles scored from the penalty spot after Alessandro Florenzi was judged to have pulled Fernando's shirt following a VAR review.

Telles sent Olsen the wrong way to fire Porto into their first quarter-final since 2014-15, although the hosts faced an anxious wait after Patrik Schick tumbled to the ground in the area before Cakir ruled there was no foul.

Corona crossed from the left and Marega easily got away from his marker and side-footed the ball into the roof of the net from two metres to level the aggregate score at 3-3.

And Pallotta, referring to that disappointment, stated on Wednesday that he has had enough of what he considers to be unjust decisions. I'm exhausted of this c**p.




Roma had taken a 2-1 advantage to Porto for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday but fell 4-3 on aggregate after a controversial VAR-awarded penalty deep into extra time.

"It's a penalty", he told Sky Sport Italia. It's the same as Fiorentina-Inter - there was an error from the referees in reviewing the footage.

Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked as Roma coach after the team crashed out of the Champions League, the Italian club confirmed on Thursday, with former boss Claudio Ranieri tipped to replace him.

"We've got to accept it, even if the way it happened is bad to take", said De Rossi.

There was no immediate comment from Roma on the future of coach Eusebio Di Francesco, who was already under pressure after a 3-0 derby defeat to Lazio on Saturday.
