Giovanni Galeone has been named as the new coach of Udinese Calcio until the end of the season after the club parted company with Loris Dominissini on Sunday.
The 65-year-old Galeone made his name at Pescara Calcio in the mid-1980s, and coached Udinese in 1994/95, leading the team to promotion from Serie B. His last experience in Serie A came in 2004 when he faced relegation with Ancona Calcio. Dominissini's brief reign came to an end following a 4-0 home defeat against AC Milan which left Udinese fourth from bottom of Serie A and just one point clear of the relegation zone. Dominissini had replaced Serse Cosmi on 11 February but picked up just two points in Serie A during his brief tenure.
Veteran defender Nestor Sensini had worked alongside Dominissini during a spell which also saw Udinese knocked out of the UEFA Cup following a 2-1 aggregate defeat against PFC Lokomotiv Moskva. He resigned from his post at the club today.
