SACKED! Christian Panucci dumped by Albania

Former AC Milan defender Christian Panucci has been sacked as Albania coach.

Panucci was shown the door after a 2-0 home loss to Turkey in their Euro 2020 opening qualifier.

The next Albania fixture against Andorra will be overseen by Ervin Bulku and Sulejman Mema.

Panucci has a long history of very short spells in his management career, dismissed by Livorno – twice – Ternana after one game and now Albania.

He had been appointed in the summer of 2017, but achieved only four wins, two draws and nine defeats.
