Del Neri to replace Iachini at Udinese?

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, former Juventus and Chievo Coach Luigi Del Neri has emerged as the front runner to replace Giuseppe Iachini at Udinese.

After a 3-0 defeat to Lazio at the weekend, the former Palermo boss was sacked after only one win in the final opening seven rounds of Serie A

The Friulani currently lie 16th in the table and could turn to the experience of the 66-year-old Coach in an attempt to reverse their fortunes. Last at Hellas Verona in 2015/16, Delneri was sacked after he replaced Andrea Mandorlini, but could not avoid relegation to Serie B for the Gialloblu.

Other options touted for the vacant seat at Udinese include former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli and Edy Rena, who was previously in charge at Atalanta in 2015/16.
