Marino brought back in by Udinese

Udinese have reappointed Pasquale Marino as coach after sacking

Gianni De Biasi following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Genoa.

Marino was only dismissed himself by Udinese just before

Christmas, but has been brought back to the club following De

Biasi’s short reign.

De Biasi won just one Serie A game during his time at the

helm, with the defeat at Genoa leaving Udinese one point outside

the relegation zone.

“Udinese Calcio confirm the squad has been handed back to

Pasquale Marino and his staff,” read the statement.

“Udinese Calcio also thank Gianni De Biasi for his hard work

and professionalism during this time.”

Marino’s first game back in charge will be at home to

Cagliari on Wednesday before champions and Serie A leaders Inter

Milan visit next weekend.
