Udinese sacked coach Massimo Oddo on Tuesday following 11 straight defeats in Serie A and hired Igor Tudor as his replacement.

The decision was expected after Sunday's 2-1 loss to Crotone left the team four points above the relegation zone.

The 41-year-old Oddo replaced Luigi Delneri in November and won his first five league matches, including a 3-1 victory at Inter Milan, before the recent setbacks

Former Juventus defender Igor Tudor was later announced as the new coach, with a news conference set for later in the day.

The former Croatia international began his senior coaching career in 2013 at Hajduk Split, where he won the Croatian Cup. He has also coached PAOK Thessaloniki, Karabukspor and Galatasaray.
