Marco Giampaolo has dramatically left his post at Catania.

The coach has endured a run of one win in the last seven games to have Catania just above the dropzone.

The outfit announced that the two parties had agreed to go their separate ways after the 1-1 draw at Chievo.

Giampaolo joined the Etnei in the summer, but has struggled after only collecting five wins in 20 League games.
