Sassuolo have decided to stick with current coach Alessio Dionisi despite the team’s lack of consistent form so far in 2024 according to reports on Monday morning.
Reports prior to the weekend indicated that Dionisi was at risk of losing his job if Sassuolo lost to Torino in Serie A on Saturday. The Neroverdi settled for a 1-1 draw with Ivan Juric’s side following goals from Andrea Pinamonti and Duvan Zapata within the opening nine minutes at the Mapei Stadium.
Sassuolo had also won just one of their previous 10 matches in all competitions heading into the Torino game at the weekend. That record now stands at one win in 11.
The only win this calendar year for Sassuolo came on January 6 at home to Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina, with Pinamonti scoring the game’s sole goal after nine minutes.
Despite Sassuolo’s lack of wins in recent weeks, the club hierarchy have reportedly decided to give Dionisi another chance, but his job is still far from secure, La Gazzetta dello Sport and TMW report.
They will face another tough test next time out in the league, as a visit to Bergamo to face Gian Piero Gasperini and an in-form Atalanta side awaits on Saturday.
Sassuolo also have an ideal replacement in mind already in the event that Dionisi is moved on in the near future. That is former Lyon and Frosinone coach and 2006 World Cup winner Fabio Grosso.
