L’Hellas Verona he exonerated Eusebio Di Francesco, the coach with whom he had started the season, after just three days of the championship: it is the first exemption of the season in Serie A football. The last defeat, the third in a row, suffered on Monday evening away to Bologna was decisive. Verona had signed Di Francesco on 7 June to replace the Croatian Ivan Juric, who went to Turin after two seasons well above expectations. In the first three days of the championship, however, Verona have always lost (the first two against Sassuolo and Inter) and are now last in the standings with zero points together with the newly promoted Salernitana.
For Di Francesco it is the fourth consecutive exemption after Rome, Sampdoria and Cagliari. According to rumors he should be replaced by former Croatian defender Igor Tudor, still under contract with Juventus after having been part of Andrea Pirlo’s staff last season as assistant coach.
