Cagliari confirm EDF, call Asamoah

After announcing Eusebio Di Francesco has signed a new contract, it’s reported Cagliari will also bring in Kwadwo Asamoah.

The Sardinians are in the relegation zone after six consecutive Serie A defeats, seven including the Coppa Italia.

Nonetheless, after today’s 1-0 loss to Genoa, Cagliari released a statement confirming coach Di Francesco had signed a new contract that expires in June 2023 rather than 2022.

It is a big show of faith in the tactician, who was sacked by Sampdoria a couple of months into last season.
