Giampaolo takes charge at Cesena

AC Cesena have named Marco Giampaolo as their new coach after the Serie A club decided not to renew the contract of Massimo Ficcadenti following a 15th-placed finish last season.

AC Cesena have appointed Marco Giampaolo as their new coach, the 43-year-old replaces Massimo Ficcadenti who failed to renew his contract after guiding the club to a 15th place finish last term.

The former Ascoli Calco 1898, AC Siena and Cagliari Calcio coach has reportedly signed a two-year contract with the club having been relieved of his duties by Cagliari in January. Cesena will also be buoyed by the news that 41-year-old goalkeeper Francesco Antoniolo has extended his stay at the club until 2012 while Giuseppe Colucci has also agreed a contract extension until 2013.
