Official: Torino sack Lerda

Torino have formally announced their decision to sack Franco Lerda and replace him with Giuseppe Papadopulo.

The Granata's defeat to Vicenza was the final straw and prompted Urbano Cairo to take action.

Torino currently lie seventh in Serie B. Lerda is the 11th Coach to be dismissed in the Cadetto this season.

Papadopulo was apparently contacted on Tuesday and has since accepted the job.

He will be formally unveiled later this morning.

The veteran tactician got Siena promoted in 2003 and Lecce as well in 2008.
