Pioli leaves Chievo Verona

Stefano Pioli is no longer the Coach of Chievo Verona after holding talks with the club on Thursday.

The two parties had the option to extend his contract by a year this summer after the club survived the drop.

However, Chievo and Pioli mutually agreed to leave each other after just 12 months together at the Stadio Bentegodi.

Pioli, who has previously bossed the likes of Parma, Grosseto and Piacenza in the past, has been linked with a move to Roma.

He met new Giallorossi sporting director Walter Sabatini last Friday.

The 46-year-old is a former midfielder who appeared for clubs such as Juventus and Fiorentina.
