Rossi considers Cagliari bench

Cagliari are reportedly considering the axe for Coach Massimo Ficcadenti, so Delio Rossi admits he’d “like” the job.

The Sardinians have scraped two draws and a defeat so far this season, including a 1-1 with 10-man Atalanta.

This has led to rumours the notoriously fiery President Massimo Cellino is preparing the boot for Ficcadenti.

It would hardly be a new experience for Ficcadenti, who was hired in August 2011, fired in November and re-hired to substitute Davide Ballardini in March 2012.

Rossi is the prime candidate to replace him after being fired from Fiorentina last season following a touchline brawl with player Adem Ljajic.

“Could Cagliari be my next club? Well, seeing as I’ve already worked in Sicily and on the mainland, I am missing Sardinia to make the collection complete,” he told Pubblico Giornale.

“When I receive a serious proposal that satisfies me then I will accept it. Clearly this has to be based on a long-term project, taking into account my working methods and history.

“I would like Cagliari, but I’d also like to work abroad at some point.”

Cagliari’s game this weekend against Roma will be played behind closed doors, as the Is Arenas has still not passed security checks.
