The club confirmed the departure of head coach Igor Tudor today via the club Website. The 44-year-old was appointed in September to replace Eusebio De Francesco following his poor start to the season. The Croatian had coached with Galatasaray, Hajduk Split and Udinese. He was Andrea Pirlo’s assistant at Juventus last season.
The Croatian had an impressive campaign with Gialloblu, finishing in 9th place in the Serie A table.
Igor, in his farewell message to Verona fans, thanked the club and the hospitality he had enjoyed during his stay. He also discloses that the president of the club had a huge project for next season, which he feels not all conditions are needed. But instead of misconception, both bodies agreed to part ways.
“ Difficult decision because in Verona, I found a work environment and a group of fantastic players and men who allowed me to express myself at my best and create a profitable harmony with the Club, thanks to which we have achieved extraordinary results—he comments and explains meter Tudor -. I thought about it for a long time, comparing myself with the President, whose frankness and transparency I appreciated in explaining the programs for next season, but we both agreed that there were not all the conditions that would have been needed to continue a path together. In light of this, it was appropriate to separate us. An affectionate greeting to the city of Verona, where I had a great time, a hug to the fans who sent me affection and warmth and big good luck to Hellas Verona for a future full of satisfaction “.
The club thanked the Croatian for their time with them.
“The Club, in the figure of the President Maurizio Setti, thanked Mr Tudor for the excellent work he has done and wished him the best professional satisfaction for the rest of his career.”
