Gallery: Di Francesco returns to Roma

On Tuesday afternoon Eusebio Di Francesco returned to the familiar surroundings of Roma's Trigoria training ground, after agreeing to become the club's new coach.

Di Francesco, 47, knows the Giallorossi well - having played for the club for four years between 1997 and 2001, before returning briefly as the team's operations manager for the 2005-06 season.
