Coach Beppe Iachini returns to the Brescia bench “with great enthusiasm” two months after he was sacked.
The tactician was dismissed on December 6 to make way for Mario Beretta, but after today's 3-0 home defeat to Chievo the club went back on that decision.
“I am sorry for Beretta, as he was unlucky in this experience,” commented Iachini.
“I return with great enthusiasm to pick up the work that was interrupted. We need to rediscover the unity and spirit that took us to win the Serie B championship and get a good start to this season.
“I still have an excellent rapport with the fans and I know the President always had faith in me.
“It will take something special to avoid relegation. I haven't seen the recent games, so I'm not sure what awaits me. Quite aside from tactics, we need to find our self-belief again, our enthusiasm and remember to think as a team unit, not individuals.
“We also hope for a bit more luck, which was notably absent from my last few matches in charge.”
President Gino Corioni was less generous with the recently-sacked Beretta.
“I never saw Brescia play football with him in charge,” blasted the patron.
“It's true, we lost with Iachini as well, but at least the team used to play.”
