Hellas Verona have officially announced the sacking of coach Eusebio Di Francesco after only three Serie A games.

Reports in Italian media emerged regarding the Gialloblu’s decision to part ways with Di Francesco after the 1-0 defeat to Bologna on Monday.

Now, the club has confirmed the decision with a statement on their official website.

“Hellas Verona FC announce that they have relieved Eusebio Di Francesco from the position as coach of the first team,” the statement said.

“The Gialloblu thanks coach Di Francesco and his staff, Francesco Tomei, Stefano Romano, Giancarlo Marini and Franco Giammartino, for the activity carried out until now.”

Di Francesco started the new season with three defeats against Sassuolo, Inter and Bologna in Serie A, and the Gialloblu sit 19th in the table.

    Absolute madness. Such a panic/trigger happy decision. Hellas played so well on the first day of the season. Only lost after having to play half a game with 10 men. They were in the match until late on vs Inter…no shame losing to the champions. And then a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Bologna and he’s gone?? Poor Di Francesco can’t catch a break. Very poor decision

    @Rosario Completely agree with you there. On top of all the things you’ve said, they also sold their best player in Zaccagni and haven’t brought in an adequate replacement, thus giving DiFra a worse squad than before and they expect him to work miracles. However we probably don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes, maybe players pushed him out. I thought we had moved past the days of Palermo and Zamperini’s circus but as Juric warned us before, the people higher up at Verona don’t care about moving forward, Hopefully DiFra finds a club that is willing to invest time and money in him again like at Sassuolo. I think he should move down to Serie B again and build his way back up.

    Yeah, seems like a mad rash decision.
    I didn’t expect him to do a.particularly great job but letting him go after 3 is crazy.

    Agree with comments above. Based on this, they clearly had concerns about hiring to begin with (warranted based on his last 2 jobs) but if that’s the case, why hire him in the first place?

    Next is Allegri

    The hell?! Watching yesterday’s game, I didn’t think Verona was doing that bad, they clearly needed more shots on goal, but it’s not like they were completely outclassed. Sacking the coach with just three games in, sheesh, better to not have hired him the first place so that he could be with a team that really wanted him.
