Ranieri or Zeman for Zola?

Gianfranco Zola is hanging by a thread and Cagliari are reportedly considering Claudio Ranieri or a return for Zdenek Zeman.

The Coach’s position was further weakened after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria, meaning the team has one point from the last six rounds.

Today Cesena could leapfrog the Sardinians in the table, leaving them in the bottom two.

The most likely outcome would be a return of Zeman, who was sacked to make way for Zola on December 23.

A banner appeared outside Cagliari’s training ground this weekend with the message: ‘Give us back Zeman.’

Another alternative floated by La Gazzetta dello Sport this morning is ex-Juventus and Greece Coach Ranieri.

He lasted just four games at the Greek national team, getting the axe in mid-November.

It would be a comeback for the 63-year-old, who was already in charge of Cagliari from 1988 to 1991, his maiden Serie A job.
