Albinoleffe Coach Emiliano Mondonico has left his post “due to personal reasons” and it's not clear if he will return.
The Serie B side was in shock after today's 1-1 draw with Ascoli, as the veteran tactician handed in his notice.
“Mondonico's experience with Albinoleffe came to an end with today's game,” explained President Gianfranco Andreoletti.
“Personal problems have prompted him to leave his post. I don't want to say more out of respect for his privacy and the players also prefer not to comment for this reason.”
Assistant manager Daniele Fortunato has been promoted to the role of Coach, but it's unclear how temporary a situation this will be.
“What we can certainly say is that Mondonico temporarily leaves us. We hope with all our heart that he can resolve these problems and return to our bench,” added the President.
