There are reports Cagliari will terminate Roberto Donadoni's contract after the sacked Coach spoke to newspapers.
The tactician was fired a month before the start of the Serie A season for reasons that have still not been entirely clarified.
It was claimed there was a row between Donadoni and President Massimo Cellino over the failure to sign David Suazo.
It is now reported that Cagliari have formally requested the termination of his contract, which still runs until June 30, 2012.
President Cellino was infuriated by the interview Donadoni gave to La Repubblica newspaper in which he criticised the patron.
Donadoni was fired in August to make way for Massimo Ficcadenti.
