Giancarlo Camolese has been named new coach of Torino.

Camolese replaces Walter Novellino, who was sacked yesterday after one win in the last 13 Serie A games.

It is a return to Torino for 'Camola', who played for the club in the 1970s and was on their bench from 2000 to 2002.

In that period Camolese helped Torino to win the Serie B championship title and then qualify for the Intertoto Cup. He then went on to work with Reggina, Vicenza and Livorno.

Torino will unveil Camolese at a media conference later today.
