Soccer: Winless Benevento sack Baroni, De Zerbi comes in (2)

Benevento, October 23 - Benevento, which has set a Serie A record by losing all nine of its opening games, on Monday sacked Marco Baroni after a 3-0 home rout to Fiorentina and replaced him with former Palermo manager Roberto De Zerbi. Baroni had led Benevento to promotion from Serie B last season. Baroni is the second coach to be sacked in Serie A this season. On October 18 Serie A strugglers Cagliari named former player Diego Lopez as their new coach after sacking Massimo Rastelli the previous day. Lopez, a solid defender nicknamed El Jefe (the boss), made 342 appearances for the Sardinia side between 1998 and 2010. The 43-year-old former Uruguay international has signed a contract running until June 2019. He previously coached Bologna and had a brief stint in charge of relegation-bound Palermo last season. Cagliari sacked Rastelli after four straight defeats in Serie A. Cagliari are 16thbin Serie A on six points from nine games, having lost 3-0 at Lazio on Sunday. photo: Baroni
