Official: Fiorentina fire Montella

Fiorentina have sacked Vincenzo Montella after last night’s 4-1 home defeat to Roma, but will wait before appointing a replacement.

The decision was somewhat inevitable, as since returning to the Stadio Franchi on April 10, Montella has lost 13 of his total 24 Serie A games in charge.

He amassed only 19 points out of an available 72, including one point in the last six rounds, earned with a stoppage-time equaliser against Inter last week.

Fiorentina seek Montella replacement

Fiorentina have decided to sack Vincenzo Montella, with Luciano Spalletti the ideal replacement, but Beppe Iachini or Gigi Di Biagio are more likely.

The Viola practically dismissed their coach last night following a 4-1 home defeat to Roma, leaving them with one point from the last six Serie A rounds.

Since returning to the Fiorentina bench in April, Montella had 27 competitive matches in charge, managing just six wins, seven draws and 14 defeats.

Prade: 'Montella replacement tough'

Fiorentina director of sport Daniele Pradè practically confirmed Vincenzo Montella’s dismissal. “It’s not easy to find a strong replacement, but patience has its limits.”

For the second season in a row, the Viola are flirting with relegation, as this evening’s 4-1 home defeat to Roma means they picked up one point in the last six Serie A rounds.

“It’s a very tough moment, we can only apologise to the fans,” Pradè told Radio Bruno.

SPAL consider Semplici axe

SPAL coach Leonardo Semplici could be fired if he doesn’t get a good result against Roma on Sunday, with Beppe Iachini reportedly lined up.

According to Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, SPAL only gave their tactician a temporary reprieve and are considering their options.

That includes contacting former Sassuolo and Udinese boss Iachini to check for his availability.

Another candidate would be ex-Genoa coach Davide Ballardini.

Samp hold Ranieri talks

Sampdoria will hold more talks with former Roma boss Claudio Ranieri later, despite fans calling for Beppe Iachini’s return.

Ranieri has come forward as a candidate after Gennaro Gattuso turned down Samp’s offer of employment.

Now, Sky Sport Italia is reporting the 67-year-old spoke to President Massimo Ferrero on Thursday morning and that the pair will meet this afternoon.
