Roma chief James Pallotta: 'We were 's****ed again' by VAR

39;I'm delighted to be coming back home'

Eusebio Di Francesco has left Roma a day after their knockout loss in the Champions League to Porto.

Alex Telles converted it to give them a 3-1 win on the night in the round of 16 second leg tie and push them through 4-3 on aggregate.

Di Francesco moved to Roma from Sassuolo in the summer of 2017.

The club's hierarchy have apparently already drawn up a shortlist to succeed him, with Claudio Ranieri among the favourites for the role on a temporary basis until the end of the season.

Roma have confirmed on Thursday that they have relieved manager Eusebio Di Francesco of his duties following their exit from the Champions League.

His first season was very successful as he led the side to a Champions League semi-final, including an epic comeback against Barcelona along the way.

"On behalf of myself and everyone at AS Roma, I'd like to thank Eusebio for his work and his commitment".

Domestically, Roma now sit fifth in the Serie A table, three points behind Inter for the final Champions League place.

"Since returning to the club, Eusebio has always acted professionally and put the club's needs ahead of his own". "It's remarkable, because I said last season we'd be in the final if there was VAR against Liverpool, yet here we are again".

"Last year we asked for VAR in the Champions League because we got screwed in the semifinal and tonight, they've got VAR and we still get robbed", Pallotta posted on the club's official Twitter feed.

Ranieri previously managed Roma between 2009 and 2011 - leading them to a second-place finish in 2010.

The 67-year-old Italian's brief spell as manager of Premier League strugglers Fulham ended last month after only four months in charge.
