Reports suggest Giovanni Stroppa could be the first Serie A Coach axed this season after two Pescara defeats.
The tactician was promoted from Lega Pro side Sud Tirol to the top flight as a replacement for Zdenek Zeman this summer.
He started badly with back-to-back 3-0 defeats against Inter and Torino.
Although the club and President Daniele Sebastiani publicly backed Stroppa , there are growing rumours that the Coach is on thin ice.
If he fails to pick up points against Sampdoria and Bologna, then it’s believed Pescara will sack Stroppa.
