ROME, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Roma club 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 on Saturday after a 4-2 home defeat to Cagliari and there was a shouting match with angry supporters outside their office.
"We decided to remove the coach from his post," said Baldini.
"This was the only decision we could make. We evaluated the situation and have given the team to Aurelio Andreazzoli, who has our faith.
"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.
