Bisoli becomes latest coaching casualty at Bologna

04 October 2011 03:35

Italian Serie A strugglers Bologna are on the lookout for what will be their fourth coach in 14 months after announcing the sacking of Pierpaolo Bisoli on Tuesday.

Bisoli took over at the end of the 2011 season when he replaced Alberto Malesani, who had taken over from Franco Colomba in August 2010 when Colomba was sacked the day before their opening match of the season.

Bisoli's sacking follows the team's failure to win a match so far this season. After one draw and four defeats Bologna sit bottom of the table. It also heaps further crisis on a club which has had five presidents since December 2010.

Sergio Porcedda, who was sacked for putting the club into debt and left Bologna with a three-point penalty last season, has since had four successors, including current incumbent Albano Gueraldi.

Bologna have yet to name a replacement for Bisoli, although Italian press reports cite former Genoa coach Davide Ballardini and Stefano Pioli, sacked by Palermo days before the start of the current season, as possible candidates.
