Eusebio Di Francesco set to take over at Venezia


Venezia FC, fresh from their promotion to Serie A, are  keen on securing Eusebio Di Francesco as their new head coach, replacing Paolo Vanoli. The former Roma manager appears to be edging closer to a deal with the Venice-based club, despite interest from other teams.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Di Francesco had caught the eye of Empoli, while Frosinone are also eager to retain him for their Serie B campaign, as confirmed by their sporting director Angelozzi. However, it seems increasingly likely that Di Francesco will take the reins at Venezia.

Di Francesco’s recent season with Frosinone ended in bitter disappointment as the team suffered relegation to Serie B following a devastating loss at home against Udinese on the final day of the season.

Frosinone needed either a win or a draw to ensure their survival, or they had to hope for Empoli to not win against Roma. Unfortunately, the closing minutes of both matches dealt a crushing blow to Di Francesco’s side.

At Empoli, Niang scored a last-minute goal to secure a win for the Tuscan club. Meanwhile, in Frosinone, a decisive goal by Davis in the 76th minute ensured Udinese’s stay in Serie A. Adding to the agony, Frosinone hit the post and the crossbar during the match, highlighting their misfortune throughout the 90 minutes.
