Davide Nicola confirms he is back at Salernitana two days after being sacked and thanks President Danilo Iervolino and sporting director Morgan De Sanctis.

Nicola was sacked on Monday after an 8-2 loss against Atalanta. The Granata held talks with several potential successors, including Roberto D’Aversa, Rafa Benitez and Leonardo Semplici, but didn’t reach an agreement with any of them.

President Iervolino called Nicola again last night, and the Italian tactician is ready to start again at the helm of the Granata two days after his sacking.

“I will tell you the truth. I received a call from President Iervolino yesterday,” the coach wrote on social media.

“With his methods, which are always lovely and friendly, he explained to me the reasons for his painful decision which he had to take to highlight discontinuity after a bad defeat against Atalanta in Bergamo.

“I apologised, taking responsibility for a performance that was not adequate and the resulting heavy defeat. I believe in this team and its men and this great club.

“I strongly demanded the President reconsider his decision knowing to deal with a human soul that has a deep sensitivity to understanding and strongly wants to build a different football. I love Salerno and strongly believe in this project,” he continued.

“The President has always given us passion, personality and desire to reach impossible targets. He firmly believes that when men push in the same direction, they can do extraordinary things.

“I thank the President for calling me; this means that the new football is made of passion and heart, and I want to repay his trust with all my love. I thank director Morgan De Sanctis for the mediation. Without him, this operation would not be possible. We have weeks of hard work ahead to reach our targets.

“Let’s start again, all together and recount another extraordinary history of football, giving the Granata fans the same passion and sense of belonging they always show us. This is Salerno, this is Salernitana, much more than just a football club.”
