Serie B: Livorno bring in Novellino

Livorno's fifth consecutive defeat proved the final straw, as President Aldo Spinelli confirmed “Walter Novellino is our new Coach.”

The Serie B side had been in the promotion places before a disastrous run of results, completed by today's 2-0 defeat at relegation strugglers Portogruaro.

“I can confirm we have sorted everything out already,” President Spinelli told TuttoMercatoWeb.

“On Monday Novellino will hold his first training session. It was all planned out.”

The contract lasts until June for the former Sampdoria, Torino and Reggina boss.

It's the end of the road for Bepi Pillon after five consecutive Serie B defeats.
