Zeman even in B

Despite firing him in December, it’s now reported that Cagliari will retain Zdenek Zeman even if they are relegated.

The Czech Coach returned to the Isolani yesterday, after his replacement Gianfranco Zola was dismissed just 10 games into his reign.

Now Tuttosport claims that, in part due to him being contracted until 2016, the Sardinian side will stick with Zeman even if they are relegated to Serie B.

Official: Cagliari recall Zeman

As expected, Zdenek Zeman has returned to Cagliari as Coach after replacement Gianfranco Zola was fired.

The tactician had been sacked on December 23 to make way for Zola, but a run of one point from six rounds saw the club change direction.

This evening Cagliari released a statement confirming Zeman had returned as Coach with his staff Vincenzo Cangelosi, Giacomo Modica and Roberto Ferola.

Ex-Roma boss Zeman had only been appointed over the summer of 2014.

Zola on the brink

It’s expected that Gianfranco Zola will leave his position as Cagliari Coach today, with Zdenek Zeman likely to return.

A 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria on Sunday leaves the Isolani marooned four points from safety, and it was reported last night that the club was seeking alternatives.

Unione Sarda speculates that Zola could even offer his resignation, meaning that the club would not be forced to pay his salary until the end of the season.

Cagliari consider Zola alternatives

Cagliari are considering several different alternatives if they sack Gianfranco Zola, including David Suazo.

According to Sky Sport Italia, club President Tommaso Giulini informed Zola that he is considering other options.

Some fans have called for the return of Zdenek Zeman, who was sacked on December 23 to make way for Zola.

That seems the most likely outcome, especially as he is still being paid his wages.

Other Coaches up for the job include Delio Rossi, Serse Cosmi and Claudio Ranieri.

Ranieri or Zeman for Zola?

Gianfranco Zola is hanging by a thread and Cagliari are reportedly considering Claudio Ranieri or a return for Zdenek Zeman.

The Coach’s position was further weakened after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria, meaning the team has one point from the last six rounds.

Today Cesena could leapfrog the Sardinians in the table, leaving them in the bottom two.

The most likely outcome would be a return of Zeman, who was sacked to make way for Zola on December 23.
