Zdenek Zeman made a typically flamboyant start to the Serie B season, Pescara crushing his former club Foggia 5-1.
It was at Foggia in the 1990s that the original ‘Zemanlandia’ was born, so it was fitting that he should make his seasonal debut against the newly-promoted side.
Stefano Pettinari was the star of the show for Pescara, bagging a hat-trick.
