Chievo sack manager

Chievo have confirmed the sacking of manager Domenico Di Carlo just six matches into the Serie A season and moved instantly to appoint Eugenio Corini as his successor.

Chievo's 4-1 defeat at fellow strugglers Palermo on Sunday proved to be the final straw, with the result pushing the side to third bottom in the table.

Di Carlo, who led the club to a tenth place finish last season in his second spell at the club, has only managed to win one game this term, while losing five on the bounce.

A statement from Chievo read: "The club offer our heartfelt gratitude to the coach and his staff, not only for the excellent results achieved during his three seasons at Chievo, but especially for their commitment, professionalism and dedication.''

Corini, who spent five years as a player with Chievo from 1998 to 2003, has been handed his first managerial role in the top flight, having had success with Crotone and Frosinone in the lower divisions.

His first game will be at home to Sampdoria on Saturday.

It is the second sacking of the season in Serie A after Giuseppe Sanino was fired by Palermo and replaced by Giampiero Gasperini.
