Serie B: Sottil new Pescara coach

Andrea Sottil has been named as the new coach of Serie B side Pescara after Nicola Legrottaglie was fired.

The 46-year-old had been out of work since his on-again off-again rapport with Catania finally concluded last summer.

A former Torino, Fiorentina Atalanta, Udinese and Genoa defender, Sottil takes over until the end of the season.

It has been a difficult campaign for Pescara, as Legrottaglie only had 12 games in charge from January 21 to July 6.

Pucciarelli: 'I don't know what happened at Chievo'

Manuel Pucciarelli has hit the ground running at Pescara and claimed he still doesn’t know why he wasn't given a chance at Chievo Verona.

In January, the 29-year-old moved to Pescara on loan and has contributed three goals in his nine games so far.

“I can’t speak about extending my contract, only the President can decide that, but there was something in January, talk of more important things than only a loan deal,” he told Rete8.

“We have now resumed play and we will talk about it later.”
