Kovalenko will have a new mentor
Empoli officially announced the termination of cooperation with the head coach Paolo Zanettias well as with his entire coaching staff.
At the start of the season, the Tuscan club did not score a single point in four matches and did not even score a single goal. The last straw was a humiliating defeat in the capital from Roma (0:7).
It was previously reported that the club’s management is considering Aurelio Andreazzoli, who previously headed the Tuscan club several times, as a replacement. Also on the list of candidates is ex-Sampdoria coach Marco Giampaolo, who led Empoli in the 2015/16 season.
Let us remind you that Ukrainian midfielder Viktor Kovalenko has been playing for Empoli since this season. The Ukrainian plays on loan from Atalanta, the Blues have the option to buy out his contract at the end of the season. The 27-year-old player spent the mentioned match against Roma on the bench.
Empoli, who are bottom of Serie A, will next host Inter on September 24.
