Livorno to stick with Nicola

Struggling Serie A outfit Livorno have reportedly decided against sacking boss Davide Nicola after the defeat to Chievo.

Domenico Di Carlo, Davide Ballardini and Edy Reja have all been linked with his job given their slump in the standings.

President Aldo Spinelli met with sporting director Stefano Capozucca this afternoon to discuss the possibility of a change.

According to Sky Sport Italia market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the Tuscan outfit have opted to keep the 40-year-old for now.

Livorno are third from bottom after winning three and drawing three of their first 14 games in the Italian top flight.

The Amaranto will play Milan, Lazio, Udinese and Fiorentina next.
