Sonetti returns to rescue Cagliari

Serie A strugglers Cagliari Calcio have reappointed the 66-year-old Nedo Sonetti as their head coach after parting company with Marco Giampaolo on Tuesday.

Cagliari Calcio have reappointed the experienced Nedo Sonetti as their head coach after parting company with Marco Giampaolo.

Cagliari comeback
The 66-year-old is back for a third spell in charge of Cagliari, following stints in 2001/02 and 2005/06, and is thought to have signed a contract until 2009. He replaces Giampaolo, 40, who was sacked for a second time by the Sardinian club earlier on Tuesday.

Struggle
Cagliari occupy 16th place in the 20-team Serie A table, having the same number of points – nine, from eleven games – as bottom side Empoli FC. During a long coaching career Sonetti has been at the helm of Atalanta BC, US Lecce, Torino FC, Ancona Calcio and Ascoli Calcio 1898 in Serie A. He was at Ascoli last season and will return to top-flight action against AC Milan on 25 November.
