Donadoni quits as Livorno coach

ROME, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Former AC Milan midfielder and Italy international Roberto Donadoni quit as coach of Livorno on Tuesday after he was publicly criticised by the Serie A club's president.

The 42-year-old's decision was prompted by Aldo Spinelli's appearance on television show Il Processo di Biscardi on Monday, when he hit out at Donadoni, saying he had 'made a complete mess' of his tactics in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Messina.

Spinelli's criticism came as a surprise as Livorno are sixth in the standings on 38 points from 23 games, although they have only managed four points in the last five games.

'The minimum I would have expected is that we could have had a debate between ourselves about it (team tactics),' Donadoni was quoted as saying on La Gazzetta dello Sport's website on Tuesday.

'If his intention was to get me to resign, then he has succeeded. It's not my intention to get in the way of what so clearly appear to be the wishes of the president.'

Donadoni, who began his coaching career at third division Lecco in 2001, guided Livorno to a ninth place finish in Serie A last season.

He is the first coach to quit in Italy's top flight this season. Eight other coaches have already been fired.
