Fonseca leaves Porto

Napoli’s next Europa League opponents Porto have parted company with Coach Paulo Fonseca, it has emerged.

The 40-year-old last week guided the Dragoes to the last-16 of the Europa League but had been under increasing pressure following recent poor domestic results.

Fonseca leaves Porto nine points behind Primeira Liga leaders Benfica, having finally been relieved of his duties after offering to resign from his post three times in the last week.

The first leg of their tie with Rafa Benitez’s Azzurri takes place next Thursday.
