Serie B side Padova have officially fired Coach Dario Marcolin to hire Bortolo Mutti.
The decision was announced late Saturday evening after the 3-1 defeat at Modena.
That result left Padova rock bottom of the Serie B table with just one point from the opening six rounds.
It’s a huge turnaround for a club that was fighting for promotion last season.
Marcolin was sacked along with assistant manager Enrico Annoni and goalkeeping coach Gaetano Petrelli.
Veteran Coach Mutti has worked for numerous clubs, including Napoli, Atalanta, Reggina, Bari and most recently Palermo.
