Novellino sacked by Livorno

Walter Novellino is no longer the Coach of Serie B strugglers Livorno after he was dismissed on Tuesday.

The Amaranto are having a problematic season in the Second Division and they are just two points above the relegation zone.

Livorno lost against Brescia in the last round of games – their fifth defeat in a row. They have won just five of their 20 League matches this term.

Former Sampdoria boss Novellino took charge of Livorno in February after he replaced the axed Bepi Pillon.

Former Atalanta midfielder and ex-Albinoleffe tactician Armando Madonna is being linked with the now vacant post.
