Marco Giampaolo has dramatically rejected the chance to return to Cagliari after Nedo Sonetti sensationally resigned as coach yesterday.
"Nedo Sonetti has resigned as Coach of Cagliari Calcio," read a brief statement posted on their official website.
"The club have recalled Marco Giampaolo. While we await his arrival, this morning's training session will be taken by the technical staff."
However, Giampaolo said last night: "Although I'm well aware that I will lose out financially, I have turned down a return. My honour and dignity are priceless."
