Udinese are taking 24 hours to consider coach Igor Tudor’s position after back-to-back embarrassing defeats to Atalanta and Roma, with Gennaro Gattuso the favourite.
The 7-1 loss to Atalanta on Sunday evening was shocking, but partially excused by the fact they were down to 10 men for an hour.
However, on Wednesday night they incredibly lost 4-0 at home against a Roma side that had Federico Fazio very harshly sent off just 32 minutes in.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Tuttomercatoweb, La Gazzetta dello Sport and others, Udinese directors are taking a few hours to think about the various alternatives.
Gattuso is believed to be the favourite, especially as he was in the stands for the 7-1 defeat to Atalanta, alongside his long-term assistant manager.
The former Milan coach has already turned down offers from Genoa and Sampdoria this month, so there is no guarantee he’d accept Udinese.
Other candidates include Pasquale Marino and Stefano Colantuono.
