The experienced Coach succeeded Massimo Oddo in February with the Delfini already well adrift at the bottom of Serie A.

Despite winning his first match against Genoa 5-0 and overseeing a marginal improvement in results, Zeman was unable to prevent the club from making an immediate return to Serie B.

“Last year I didn’t succeed in changing the mentality of the team,” the 70-year-old conceded.
