Official: Sassuolo appoint Iachini

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

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.

Wk14: The Sliding Doors Scudetto

Who knows how many tiny moments will decide the title race in Serie A this season? Susy Campanale believes we saw a few in this weekend's games.

Life is just a series of moments and put together they form a narrative, but it’s the ‘Sliding Doors’ effect: what if that one tiny detail had gone differently? A Scudetto can be won and lost on whether the ball ricochets off the woodwork just the right way to bounce into the net or back out.

According to multiple sources, a meeting was set up with Iachini today to agree personal terms for a contract to June 2019 and an announcement is imminent.

Iachini is most famous for his baseball cap, which he wears to protect his eyes from the light due to an ocular condition, and had several spells on the Palermo bench.

Bucchi: 'I can't train Sassuolo character'
