Hellas Verona sporting director Tony D’Amico said the Gialloblu must ‘rediscover our spirit’ after sacking Eusebio Di Francesco.
Igor Tudor has replaced the former Cagliari and Sampdoria coach and was presented today, with D’Amico present.
The sporting director spoke about the sacking of Di Francesco, who only lasted three games at the Bentegodi. His final game was the 1-0 defeat to Bologna on Monday.
“I think a small premise is right: when you make these decisions there’s great regret, on a human level, for a professional like Di Francesco, whom I consider a good coach and an excellent person,” D’Amico said at a press conference.
“Our work began on July 10, and I think a perspective has failed. We didn’t consider that the modalities were still suitable for a club like ours.
“We don’t shirk our responsibilities, and therefore we intervened quickly. I reiterate the human and professional esteem towards Di Francesco, but from my point of view we need to rediscover our spirit. What the players have shown on the pitch over the last two years, face all the teams with courage, ambition, the desire to get involved and achieve something that was great for us.
“This is why we have entrusted the technical guide to coach Igor Tudor.”
