>>>ANSA/ Soccer: Roma sack Garcia, Spalletti poised to return

(By Paul Virgo). Rome, January 13 - AS Roma said Wednesday that they have sacked under-fire French coach Rudi Garcia. The Serie A club are poised to bring back former boss Luciano Spalletti, ANSA sources said. Roma's American Chairman James Pallotta gave the green light for the change after meeting Spalletti in Miami, the sources said. The club put Alberto De Rossi, the head of one of Roma's academy sides, in charge of Wednesday's training session for the first team. "On behalf of myself and everyone at AS Roma, I'd like to thank Rudi Garcia for all of his hard work since joining the club," Pallotta said in a statement. "We've all enjoyed some great moments during his time at Roma but we believe that this is the right time for a change". Roma are trailing Serie A leaders Napoli by seven points in fifth place at the season's half-way stage after Saturday's 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers AC Milan. They managed to creep into the last 16 of the Champions League under Garcia despite a 6-1 thrashing by Barcelona in the group stage, but they are out of the Italian Cup after being ousted by second-tier Spezia. Garcia, who led Lille to the French title in 2011, got off to a great start on the Roma bench in the 2013-14 season, when they pushed Juventus hard for the Serie A title. But they lost their way in the second half of last season, while still managing to finish second, and also suffered the humiliation of losing 7-1 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Spalletti, 56, was in charge of Roma from 2005 to 2009. They won the the Italian Cup in 2007 and 2008 under the attack-minded tactician and he led Roma to consecutive Champions League quarter-finals, where they were knocked out both times by Manchester United. The Giallorossi also ran Inter Milan close for the 2007 and 2008 scudettos. After Roma, the former midfielder had a successful stint at Zenit Saint Petersburg, leading them to two Russian league titles, a Russian Cup and a Russian Super Cup between 2009 and 2014.
