MILAN, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Serie A side Cagliari, struggling
in 17th place after only two wins this season, sacked coach
Pierpaolo Bisoli on Monday after just 12 games in the job.
"Unfortunately, too often in football, results are key and
many times they force us to take decisions which go against
human feelings and friendships," president Massimo Cellino said
in a statement.
Former Cagliari player Bisoli, whose final game was Sunday's
1-0 home defeat by Genoa, was appointed in the close season
after Massimilano Allegri was released from his contract to join
Despite a hero's welcome, performances were inconsistent
with the added complication of Italy World Cup goalkeeper
Federico Marchetti being dropped from the first team by Cellino
for asking for a transfer.
Marchetti, who has not played all season, has filed a case
of unfair treatment against Cagliari and a league arbitration
hearing is set for the end of the week.
Former Italy and Napoli boss Roberto Donadoni is the media's
favourite to take over at Cagliari, who recently unveiled
ambitious plans to build a new stadium in the next two years to
replace the decaying Sant'Elia.
