Official: Perugia hire Cosmi

Serie B side Perugia have officially hired Serse Cosmi after sacking Massimo Oddo earlier today.

The World Cup winner was dismissed following a 1-0 defeat to Venezia, which saw the Umbrian side drop to eighth in the table.

As expected, they have turned to a familiar face in Cosmi to keep them in the promotion mix.

This is the 61-year-old’s second spell on the Perugia bench, having managed them between 2000 and 2004 with great success.

Perugia: Oddo out, Cosmi in!

Serie B side Perugia have sacked coach Massimo Oddo and will replace the World Cup winner with cult hero Serse Cosmi.

Oddo’s dismissal comes after a 1-0 home defeat to Venezia, which left the Umbrian side eighth and only in the playoffs by the virtue of a point.

Replacing him, reports Sky Sport Italia, will be Cosmi [pictured], who memorably coached Perugia between 2000 and 2004.

The 61-year-old led them through the most successful period in their recent history, which yielded an Inter-Toto Cup in 2003.

Perugia to sack Nesta?

Perugia will reportedly sack Coach and former Italy defender Alessandro Nesta after their elimination from the Serie B playoffs.

Perugia lost 4-1 to Verona after extra time on Saturday, and Sportitalia writes Nesta is ‘on the verge’ of being dismissed.

The ex-Milan and Lazio stopper had recently celebrated a year in charge of the Umbrian side, although their place in the playoffs only came as a result of Palermo’s demotion to Serie C.
