Serie B side Trapani have fired Coach Serse Cosmi, despite taking them to the promotion play-off final last season.
The Sicilians almost achieved their first ever promotion to the top flight, but were beaten by Pescara in the play-offs.
Trapani struggled so far this season with just 11 points in 16 rounds.
Cosmi also saw his car set alight outside his home in an apparent act of intimidation by fans.
This evening Trapani announced that the former Perugia Coach had been sacked.
