"We faced a difficult situation but addressed it in a responsible and strategic way. Aurelio Andreazzoli is a true football professional and has a strong track record with AS Roma. He knows the value of our players and has their respect."

Zeman himself issued a short message on his personal website which simply read: "I am sorry for the Roma fans, but I tried to give my all. Zdenek Zeman."

It is believed Roma will appoint a permanent replacement as soon as possible.
