Cagliari sack coach Massimo Rastelli

Cagliari have sacked coach Massimo Rastelli.

Rastelli has become the first coach fired in Serie A this season.

The move comes two days after a 3-2 home loss to previously winless Genoa left Cagliari in 14th place with six points.

It was the Sardinian club's sixth loss in eight matches, fourth straight defeat and third consecutive at home.

It's the longest the Italian league has gone without a firing since 1998, when Luigi Simoni was fired by Inter Milan after the 11th round.
