Official: Di Francesco leaves Samp

Sampdoria have officially parted with Coach Eusebio Di Francesco after a poor start to the season.

A statement on Samp’s contract confirms the club and Di Francesco severed their ties by mutual consent.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports he is walking away with €1.8m – amounting to one year of his three-year contract.

The former Roma boss only moved to Marassi over the summer, but six defeats and only one win from seven Serie A games have left the side bottom.

Sky Sport Italia and Sport Mediaset, meanwhile, both claim Beppe Iachini is the favourite to replace the 50-year-old.

Iachini has already coached the Blucerchiati, taking them back into the top flight in 2012.
