Last-place Siena makes coaching change

Last-place Siena has fired coach Marco Baroni and hired Alberto Malesani as his replacement.

The Tuscan club made the switch Monday following a 2-0 loss to Atalanta a day earlier.

Siena has only one win and six points after 13 rounds of the Serie A.

Malesani has previously coached Fiorentina, Parma, Verona, Modena, Panathinaikos and Empoli.

Last week, Siena attempted to hire Mario Beretta but the deal fell through when Beretta asked for a two-year contract.
