ROME - Struggling Serie A club Bologna
appointed Stefano Pioli as their new coach Tuesday after sacking
Pioli, whose short reign as coach of Palermo ended last
month before a Serie A ball had been kicked, inherits a side
bottom of the league with one point from five matches.
"Stefano Pioli is from today the new coach of Bologna," the
club said in a statement on their website
hours after Bisoli's dismissal was announced.
"He has signed a two-year contract and will be presented to
the press tomorrow [Wednesday]."
The 45-year-old Pioli, who has previously coached
Salernitana, Modena, Parma, Grosseto, Piacenza and Sassuolo, led
Chievo Verona to 11th place last season before replacing Delio
Rossi at Palermo.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Rossoblu, who finished two places
above the relegation zone last term under Alberto Malesani,
dismissed Bisoli after four months in charge. Sunday's 2-0 loss
at Udinese was their fourth defeat of the season.
