Serie B: Venezia appoint Vecchi

Inter youth team Coach Stefano Vecchi has officially been appointed as the new Coach of Venezia, replacing Pippo Inzaghi.

Venezia made the announcement this afternoon, also appointing new director of sport Valentino Angeloni until June 2021, coming in for Leandro Rinaudo.

Vecchi has signed on for three years with an option for a fourth season.

It is an important step forward for Vecchi, who has achieved great success with the Inter Primavera squad.

In four years on the Under-19 bench, he won six trophies – including the Viareggio Cup 2015, Primavera TIM Cup 2015-16 and the Scudetto in both 2016-17 and 2017-18.

Venezia had reached the Serie B promotion play-offs semi-final, but Inzaghi left to take over at Bologna.
