Italian Serie A club, AS Roma, have sacked coach Eusebio Di Francesco on Thursday.

This sack comes a day after they knocked out of the Champions League by Porto.

"Di Francesco has left the club with immediate effect," the club said in a statement.

"The club would like to thank Eusebio for his work during his time at AS Roma and wish him success in the future."

Roma lost 3-1 at Porto in the second leg of their round of 16 tie on Wednesday and were knocked out of the Champions League 4-3 on aggregate, with a decisive goal coming from a penalty three minutes from the end of extra time.

Italian media are already reporting that Claudio Ranieri, who was fired by English Premier League side Fulham last week, is a possible replacement.
