ROME (AP) — Sampdoria has parted ways with coach Eusebio Di Francesco after losing six of its first seven Serie A matches of the season.
Sampdoria said on its website Monday that the decision was made by mutual consent.
Sampdoria is in last place in Serie A with just three points. Club president Massimo Ferrero said after Saturday's 2-0 loss at Hellas Verona that he would meet with Di Francesco on Sunday before making a decision on his future.
Sampdoria did not immediately announce a new coach, but Italian media reported that Giuseppe Iachini is the favorite to replace Di Francesco.
