Massimo Ficcadenti is back in charge of Cagliari after the dismissal of Davide Ballardini.

The Sardinians wielded the axe after Friday's 6-3 defeat to Napoli, also removing his management staff.

There was some confusion this evening, as at first Cagliari announced Ballardini's dismissal, then another statement appeared insisting a meeting was "still in progress."

It has now been confirmed that Ficcadenti has returned to the Cagliari bench with his staff.
