Today, the Italian coach turns 49 and UEFA wishes him happy birthday featuring one of the greatest moments of his career.
Although his team is struggling to find the right tactical approach to perform proficiently on the pitch, this is the moment to thank Eusebio Di Francesco for his dedication to Roma.
Today, the Italian coach turns 49! EDF joined the giallorossi at the beginning of the 2017-18 campaign. Many Roma fans were skeptical of his arrival in the Italian capital, but the results on the pitch demonstrated Di Francesco’s qualities. The club of Trigoria has reached the Champions League semifinals after 30 years playing a very efficient football and knocking Barcelona out from the most prestigious international competition for clubs.
UEFA, The Union of European Football Associations and the governing body of football in Europe wished Di Francesco a happy birthday through their official Twitter account posting the now historic goal of Manolas against Barcelona which led the Giallorossi to the Champions League semifinals.
The Italian coach certainly has appreciated this sweet thought. Eusebio Di Francesco knows that his roster is competitive this season as well. One of his main goals will be to replicate that amazing international adventure. But now, he must primarily focus on finding the right tactical approach to perform a great 2018-19 Serie A season.
Oggi l’allenatore dell’@OfficialASRoma , Eusebio Di Francesco, compie 4⃣9⃣ anni!
