Serie A Livorno sack the boss that never was

Serie A bottom side Livorno sacked de facto coach Gennaro Ruotolo on Monday, with official boss Vittorio Russo also appearing to be on the brink of losing his job.

Ruotolo led the side to promotion last season but did not have the necessary coaching badges for the top-flight so Russo, who had the qualifications, was brought in to shadow him.

"I'm really sorry but Livorno comes before everything and a change was needed," club president Aldo Spinelli told reporters after dismissing good friend Ruotolo.

Former Parma and Empoli coach Luigi Cagni has said he is interested in the post, if Russo leaves as well, while media reports have said Spinelli wants to bring in former Italy and AC Milan boss Arrigo Sacchi as technical director.
