Official: Lopez returns to Cagliari

Cagliari have officially confirmed that Diego Lopez has returned as Coach, replacing Massimo Rastelli.

Yesterday the Isolani became the first Serie A side to sack their Coach this season, and it emerged last night that Lopez was close to a return.

The former defender simply had to agree a termination with Palermo, who sacked him last season, to return to the club he managed in 2013-14.

Lopez set for Cagliari return

Diego Lopez is on the verge of a return to Cagliari after Massimo Rastelli was sacked this afternoon, as Palermo terminated his contract.

The Uruguayan tactician was still under contract with Palermo, despite being fired last season, and tonight the club announced he had terminated the deal by mutual consent.

This is usually done so that the Coach is free to sign for another club.

Report: Cagliari to sack Rastelli

Cagliari are believed to be on the verge of sacking Coach Massimo Rastelli, following four defeats in a row.

Former Palermo boss Beppe Iachini is thought to be first in line to replace the outgoing Coach, with Massimo Oddo also being considered.

Cagliari Coach Massimo Rastelli admits his position is in doubt after the 3-2 home defeat to Genoa. “The club can make its decisions.”

The Sardinians continue to struggle and were fortunate not to lose by a bigger margin this afternoon.

Genoa thriller in Sardinia

Genoa made the most of truly terrible defending to take all three points from Cagliari in this five-goal thriller.

The Grifone should arguably have had the game sealed up by half-time, because Andrej Galabinov and Adel Taarabt converted only some of the many chances created.

Leonardo Pavoletti scored his first goal in a Cagliari jersey, nodding in to get the hosts back in the game.

Luca Rigoni added to his assist with a towering header from a corner and the cushion was needed, as Joao Pedro converted a penalty for 3-2.

Lazio lose stadium closure appeal

Lazio have lost their appeal against a ban for racist chants, so will need to play with the Curva Nord closed against Cagliari next weekend.

The Aquile were handed a one-match ban on the Curva Nord section of the Stadio Olimpico following racist insults aimed at Sassuolo players.

Although the club presented an appeal, it was today rejected by the Corte Sportiva d’Appello Nazionale.

This means Lazio fans won’t be allowed into the Curva Nord area behind the goal for the next home match against Cagliari.
