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.
