Venezia sack Zenga for Cosmi

Serie B side Venezia have sacked Walter Zenga and appointed Serse Cosmi in the Coach’s place.

Zenga only replaced former Inter Primavera boss Stefano Vecchi in October, but a run of four defeats in five matches have left Venezia fighting relegation.

It marks the latest sacking in the career of the ex-Italy goalkeeper, having already been dismissed by the likes of Palermo, Sampdoria and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Succeeding the 58-year-old is Cosmi, who is best known for his tenure at Perugia between 2000 and 2004, bringing through the likes of Fabio Grosso and Marco Materazzi.

He has gone on to coach the likes of Genoa, Udinese, Brescia and Livorno, albeit with less success.
