De Canio set for Lecce return?

Gigi De Canio walked out on Lecce due to a row with the Semeraro family, but a new President could see him return.

The Coach became a hero to fans when he took the Salentini to safety against all odds this season.

He resigned ahead of the final game, noting Lecce and the Semeraro family who own the club had “no real plans” for the future.

The side is up for sale after 16 years under their ownership and it's reported a conglomerate of businessmen is in negotiations to take over.

According to Tuttosport, the new patrons would offer the job back to De Canio with Claudio Fenucci as director general.
