Sonetti named new Cagliari coach

Nedo Sonetti has been named new Cagliari coach following the dismissal of Marco Giampaolo.

Sonetti, 66, veteran returns to the club he guided to survival in 2005-06 for a third spell at the Stadio Sant'Elia.
Sonetti has been unemployed since suffering relegation with Ascoli last term and had been heavily linked with the Reggina and Livorno jobs.

A 3-0 home defeat against Sampdoria was the final act in a miserable start to the season for Giampaolo.

The club announced last night: "Cagliari would like to communicate that Marco Giampaolo has been dismissed. The club would like to thank him for his efforts."
