Chievo Verona have confirmed that Eugenio Corini is their new Coach after they took the decision to fire Domenico Di Carlo.
The latter has been axed after the side slumped into the relegation zone following five straight Serie A defeats.
Chievo, beaten 4-1 by Palermo on Sunday, have collected just three points from a possible 18 this term.
Corini, a former midfielder at Chievo who spent six years with the club as a player, has been handed a contract until June 2013, with an option for a second season.
The Italian will be presented to the media later today and he’ll make his debut in Saturday’s game against Sampdoria.
Corini is a relatively inexperienced tactician with brief past spells at Portogruaro, Crotone and Frosinone.
