Cagliari have reappointed the experienced Nedo Sonetti as their head coach after parting company with Marco Giampaolo earlier today.
The 66-year-old is back for a third spell in charge of Cagliari, following stints in 2001/02 and 2005/06, and is thought to have signed a contract until 2009. He replaces Giampaolo, 40, who was sacked for a second time by the Sardinian club.
Cagliari occupy 16th place in the Serie A standings, having the same number of points – nine, from eleven games – as bottom side Empoli.
During a long coaching career Sonetti has been at the helm of Atalanta, Lecce, Torino, Ancona and Ascoli in Serie A. He was at Ascoli last season and will return to top-flight action against AC Milan on 25 November.
