Sassuolo ruin Zenga debut

Matteo Politano scored one and assisted another for Edoardo Goldaniga, as Sassuolo ruined Walter Zenga’s debut on the Crotone bench.

It could’ve been 3-1 to the Neroverdi, but Alessandro Matri saw a late penalty saved by Alex Cordaz.

Remarkably, this is Sassuolo’s first home victory of the season and until today they had scored just once at the Mapei Stadium.

New boss Beppe Iachini got his first success at the club and made it a debut to forget for Zenga, who only replaced Davide Nicola on the Crotone bench on Friday.

Iachini: ‘Search for our identity’

Beppe Iachini says Sassuolo are still searching for their identity ahead of the match with Crotone.

The former Udinese boss has presided over two matches since replacing the sacked Cristian Bucchi as Neroverdi Coach.

They were beaten 3-0 by Fiorentina last weekend, with the last seven days being the first full week Iachini has had to work with his new players.

“Both for the match against Bariand the one against Fiorentina, we had very little time to prepare,” the tactician said.

Iachini: ‘Win will boost morale’

New Sassuolo Coach Beppe Iachini says the last-minute win over Bari will “boost morale” going forward.

Official: Sassuolo appoint Iachini

As expected, Sassuolo have appointed former Palermo and Udinese boss Beppe Iachini as their new Coach.

A statement on Sassuolo’s official website adds Iachini will be unveiled to the Press on Tuesday at 12:00 CET.

Reports suggest the 54-year-old has signed a contract with the Neroverdi until June 2019 after Cristian Bucchi was sacked earlier on Monday.

Iachini is a promotion specialist, having taken Chievo, Brescia, Sampdoria and Palermo to Serie A, but is more known for wearing a cap.

Official: Sassuolo dismiss Bucchi

Cristian Bucchi has been sacked as Coach of Sassuolo, freeing up former Palermo boss Beppe Iachini for the role.

The news was confirmed in a statement on Sassuolo’s official website after Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to fellow strugglers Verona left them without a home win in 2017-18.

The former Serie B hitman had big shoes to fill over the summer, replacing Roma-bound Eusebio Di Francesco.

However, nine defeats in 14 matches left the Neroverdi just a point above the relegation zone.
