Nevio Orlandi has today been installed at the helm of Serie A stugglers Reggina after Renzo Ulivieri left in the wake of Sunday's 0-0 draw against Palermo.
Former youth coach Orlandi steps up for his first experience with a senior side after the 67-year-old Ulivieri, who had replaced Massimo Ficcadenti in the beginning of November with Reggina bottom of Serie A with just five draws in ten matches, guided the side to 17 points in 16 games during his spell in charge.
The Amaranto are now second from bottom, three points adrift of safety.
"Reggina want to thank Ulivieri for his technical and human contribution, but he has been relieved of his duties," read a statement on the club’s official website.
During his career Ulivieri coached Sampdoria, Cagliari, Bologna and Parma in Serie A and also Napoli in the second division.
Orlandi’s first task could hardly be tougher as Reggina travel to the San Siro to face champions Inter on Saturday.
