Eusebio Di Francesco thrilled with Cagliari move: President wanted me at all costs

Eusebio Di Francesco is delighted to take charge of Cagliari.

Di Francesco was confirmed as new coach of Cagliari yesterday and he revealed the charm of president Tommaso Giulini convinced him.

“First of all, the President's great desire to bring me to Cagliari convinced me," Di Francesco said at a press conference. “He wanted me at all costs.

“I really want to start again after three difficult months at Sampdoria, where I accepted but without much conviction.

“There was immediately a great empathy here. Many have written that I was sacked from Sampdoria, but I resigned after three months, in which I didn't do well.

“Unlike then, I'm overwhelmed. We will start from 4-3-3, even if I'm not a fundamentalist. I have to get to know the players in training."
