Sassuolo’s coach Eusebio Di Francesco is on the hot seat once again. Neroverdi lost four straight games, they haven’t won a game in December are in 18th position. The situation still isn’t desperate, as they are only one point away from Bologna, two from Chievo and 4 from Sampdoria and Atlanta, but it’s definitely critical.
Di Francesco was close to getting sacked after the slow start that peaked with the 7-0 home loss against Inter, but the management confirmed the coach that brought them to Serie A. Anyway, Sassuolo, after 18 games, doesn’t seem to have improved enough and is one of the frontrunners for the relegation.
As Di Marzio reports, Ballardini is one of the name circulating in case Di Francesco is fired. January is a time of the year were hiring new coaches is easier as the clubs can satisfy the needs of the new technician on the market.
