Di Francesco set to join Venezia on two-year deal


Eusebio Di Francesco has chosen Venezia as his next destination after the disappointment of relegation with Frosinone. The 54-year-old coach from Pescara, who was also approached by Empoli, has accepted the job at the newly-promoted club for the second consecutive season.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that a two-year contract is ready for Di Francesco, with the final details to be ironed out in the coming hours

With Di Francesco’s move to Venezia all but confirmed, Empoli are now expected to turn their attention to William Viali, who guided Cosenza to safety in Serie B last season.

Di Francesco’s appointment represents a quick return to the dugout after Frosinone’s relegation from Serie A. The former Roma manager will be tasked with establishing Venezia in the top flight following their promotion.
