US Sassuolo Calcio have reappointed Eusebio Di Francesco as coach after parting company with Alberto Malesani.

Malesani, 59, replaced Di Francesco at the end of January but Sunday's 1-0 home loss to his former club Parma FC was the fifth straight defeat of his reign, leaving Sassuolo two points adrift at the bottom of Serie A. Former AS Roma player Di Francesco, 44, led Sassuolo to the Serie B title and promotion last season having taken charge in summer 2012.
