They are struggling in Serie A, fifth, and there was talk of firing De Francesco before Wednesday, with the Porto defeat in extra-time sealing his fate.

Roma reached the Champions League semi-finals last season but were only able to get to the last 16 this time around.

They were also thrashed 7-1 by Fiorentina in the Italian Cup and 3-0 by Lazio in the Rome derby.
