SALERNO, Italy (AP) — Last-place Salernitana fired its coach, Fabrizio Castori, after only one win in eight matches.
The announcement on Sunday came a day after Salernitana lost 2-1 at Spezia in the Italian league.
It’s the third coaching change of the Serie A season, after Igor Tudor replaced Eusebio Di Francesco at Hellas Verona, and Walter Mazzarri replaced Leonardo Semplici at Cagliari.
A replacement for Castori was not immediately named.
Salernitana is playing in the top division for the first time in more than 20 years.
Castori guided the team to a second-place finish in Serie B last season to earn promotion.
