Coach Stefano Colantuono

Stefano Colantuono had been Serie A's longest-serving Coach until Atalanta sacked him in March 2015, just shy of his five-year anniversary. The bald-headed tactician is given a new opportunity at the Stadio Friuli, where his experience of coaxing young talents into Serie A stars and maintaining a solid 4-4-1-1 approach should fit right in. The Roman is a no-nonsense Coach with a strong record in relegation tussles. His name was dragged into the match-fixing investigation and Colantuono has pledged to prove his innocence if charges are pursued.
