Serie B side Varese have sacked Coach Carmine Gautieri and recalled his predecessor Stefano Sottili.
Gautieri had been drafted in after Sottili’s dismissal in November, but failed to turn their fortunes around.
This afternoon a 3-0 home defeat to Padova proved the final straw and Varese brought Sottili back to the bench.
Varese are 10 points clear of the relegation zone, sitting in 16th place.
