Serie B: Zenga set for Venezia

Serie B side Venezia have reportedly sacked Coach Stefano Vecchi and hired Walter Zenga, as accidentally confirmed by the new boss.

The Lagunari were in Serie C two years ago and came close to promotion last term under Pippo Inzaghi, who left for a Serie A role with Bologna.

They have been dire so far this season, managing one win, one draw and five defeats between Serie B and the Coppa Italia.

As the only victory was in the opening round, it was not much of a surprise to see the break for international duty as a chance to sack former Inter Primavera tactician Vecchi.

According to multiple sources including Sportitalia and Sky Sport Italia, Zenga has been chosen as his replacement.

Zenga accidentally confirmed as much with an Instagram post, which he then swiftly deleted.

It is a return to the fold for Zenga, whose last job saw him unable to save Crotone from relegation.

The 58-year-old former goalkeeper has a well-travelled management career with the likes of National Bucharest, Steaua Bucharest, Red Star Belgrade, Gaziantepspor, Catania, Palermo, Al-Nasr, Sampdoria, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Crotone.
