Torino sack coach Giampaolo and appoint Davide Nicola

Football News

Torino dismissed Marco Giampaolo and hired Davide Nicola between Monday and Tuesday, the club reported. At present, the Granata are in 18th place in the standings, tied with Parma, with just 13 points after 18 matches.

In the last 12 rounds, they won once and, while they have had few ties lately, against Bologna, Napoli, and Verona, the management decided to pull the plug on the experiment. The final straw was a nil-nil draw with Spezia, where they played with a one-man advantage for 80 minutes but were unable to score.

If he effectively avoids relegation, Nicola has agreed on a six-month contract with an optional second season. After taking over in December, he managed to do that at Genoa in the previous campaign, gathering eight wins, four draws, and nine defeats in 21 tilts, but he was not retained by the Rossoblù. He previously coached in the Top League at Udinese and Crotone.
