Zeman was a popular choice when he was appointed for his second stint at Roman at the start of the season. Yet, the sidelining a number of key players and poor results have led to the sacking of the 65-year-old.

Rome:

Roma director general Franco Baldini defended their decision to sack Zdenek Zeman as head coach, saying it was the only decision they could make.

The coach was officially sacked Saturday after a 2-4 home defeat to Cagliari, reports Xinhua.

"We decided to remove the coach from his post. This was the only decision we could make. We evaluated the situation and have given the team to Aurelio Andreazzoli, who has our faith," said Baldini Saturday.

"Knowing the players, this is the best decision to make at this moment. We spoke to all the management staff and the club owners gave me this responsibility," he said.
