Official: Empoli appoint Muzzi

As expected, Serie B side Empoli have appointed Roberto Muzzi as their new coach after sacking Cristian Bucchi.

Although Bucchi was given his marching orders on Tuesday, his replacement was not confirmed until this morning.

It is a return for Muzzi, who had worked at the Stadio Castellani last season as assistant manager to Aurelio Andreazzoli.

The 48-year-old had followed Andreazzoli to Genoa, where the coach was fired on October 22, so had to first negotiate the termination of that contract.
