Perotti replaces Nicola as Livorno boss

Attilio Perotti has been installed at the helm of struggling AS Livorno Calcio after Davide Nicola became the eighth Serie A coach to lose his job this season.

AS Livorno Calcio have parted company with coach Davide Nicola, the eighth Serie A club to make such a change this season, with technical director Attilio Perotti taking the reins.

On a day when the Livorno-born Massimiliano Allegri left AC Milan, his home-town club opted to dismiss Nicola after the bottom side's 3-0 home loss against Parma FC at the weekend. Livorno announced their decision with a brief note on their website, thanking the coach for his efforts.

They have moved quickly to replace him, with Perotti filling the vacancy. The 67-year-old, who previously coached Hellas-Verona FC and Empoli FC in Serie A, has headed Livorno's technical department since 2011. He had a four-game stint as first-team boss in 2011/12, helping the Tuscan side avoid relegation to the third tier. 

Nicola, 40, a former Genoa CFC and Torino FC defender in his playing days, coached AC Lumezzane in Lega Pro from 2010 to 2012 before joining Livorno in Serie B and winning promotion last term via the play-offs.
