Lecce hint at De Canio axe

Gigi De Canio could soon be axed from the Lecce bench after comments from President Pierandrea Semeraro. “No official decisions have been made.”

The Salentini were beaten 3-2 in Cagliari this afternoon, although they almost completed the comeback from 3-0 down.

“We are going to analyse the situation carefully, seeing as for too long we have been faced with an evident problem in our approach to the game,” the President told Rai Sport.

“We continue to gift the first half to our opponents, it happened last week with Sampdoria and again today with Cagliari. Even some good second half performances are not enough to get the points we need.

“What of De Canio's situation? No official decisions have been made. We will have a calm meeting and in these situations it is best to think them over with a cool head.

“On Tuesday we will announce our decision on the Coach following the clarification in a meeting on certain issues.”

Alberto Cavasin has been linked with a return to the club he led from 1999 to 2002, while Walter Novellino, Franco Colomba and Gigi Cagni are other options.
