Bologna game 'decisive for Pioli'

Stefano Pioli’s future as Fiorentina Coach will reportedly depend on their result against Bologna on Sunday.

A defeat in that game would see Primavera boss Emiliano Bigica replace the 53-year-old after just one win from their last 11 matches, claims Gazzetta dello Sport.

Bigica would take the reins at the Artemio Franchi until the end of the season, while a decision would be made on who would take the job on a permanent basis in the summer.

Eusebio Di Francesco, who was recently fired by Roma, is believed to be Fiorentinarsquo;s first choice, whereas the names of Sampdoria Coach Marco Giampaolo and Viola old boy Fabio Liverani have also been bandied about.
