Cagliari have sacked Massimiliano Allegri.

The Sardinians are safe from the threat of relegation in 12th place and were until recently still in the hunt for a Europa League spot.

Cagliari confirmed Allegri's dismissal last night:

"The team is assigned to Primavera youth team tactician Giorgio Melis, joined by Gianluca Festa.

"Our thanks go to Allegri for the work he has done and best wishes for the continuation of his career."
