Bruno Giordano has been sacked by Messina for the second time this season after the 3-1 loss at Sampdoria on Saturday.
The former Napoli striker was shown the door this evening and has been replaced by Bruno Bolchi until the end of the campaign.
Messina said in a statement: "The club have announced the dismissal of coach Bruno Giordano and announces that Bruno Bolchi will take over the team until the end of the 2006-07 campaign."
The Sicilians, second from bottom in Serie A, originally axed Giordano on January 30 when he was replaced by Alberto Cavasin. However, the latter lasted for just eight games and Giordano was called back on April 2 before tonight’s decision.
The Sicilian club, who escaped relegation last term due to Juventus’ demotion, are currently eight points adrift of safety.
Giordano is the second Serie A boss in Sicily to get the chop today after Palermo got rid of Francesco Guidolin.
