Bottom club Cremonese fires coach Massimiliano Alvini

CREMONA, Italy (AP) — Cremonese fired coach Massimiliano Alvini on Saturday, hours after it lost at home against Monza 3-2 to leave it rooted to the bottom of Serie A.

Cremonese’s 11th defeat in 18 league matches left it eight points from safety.

It remains the only team in Serie A without a win.

The 52-year-old Alvini had been in charge of Cremonese since June. It was his first job coaching a side in the Italian top-flight.
