Torino Calcio coach Renato Zaccarelli has taken up a new role as general manager and will be replaced by Giacomo Ferri.
Zaccarelli only became coach in February, replacing Renzo Ulivieri who had been sacked just four months after replacing Giancarlo Camolese. Ferri, 44, is the former youth coach who was promoted to be Zaccarelli's assistant earlier this year.
Torino have had a miserable season and are rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table. Last Sunday's 3-1 home defeat by Piacenza FC, was the Granata's 17th of the season - only the second time in the club's history that they have recorded that many losses.
Looking to the future
"I'm really sorry for this negative record," said Zaccarelli. "But now it's time to start thinking about next season." The 52-year-old former Torino player and Italian international will now help to build the side for next season. With just six matches to play, Torino are eleven points behind Reggina Calcio, the nearest safe side in the division.
