Cagliari have officially sacked Davide Ballardini, but have not yet announced the name of his replacement.
The Coach had only taken over from Massimo Ficcadenti in November, but managed 18 points from 17 games.
He won four, drew six and lost seven, in which the team scored 17 goals and conceded 25.
“Cagliari Calcio announce Coach Davide Ballardini has been removed from his post along with his staff, Carlo Regno, Stefano Melandri, Nico Facciolo and Andrea Rinaldi,” read a statement.
Although it is not yet confirmed who will replace Ballardini, it’s widely reported Cagliari will recall Ficcadenti.
The Sardinians also sacked Roberto Donadoni during pre-season training in August.
