Mario Beretta has been officially announced as the new coach of newly-promoted Lecce.
The former Siena boss met with club officials today, agreeing a one-year deal during talks with Sporting Director Guido Angelotti and President Giovanni Semeraro.
Beretta will be presented in front of the media at Stadio Via del Mare on Tuesday.
He steps into the void left by Giuseppe Papadopulo who left the club following their Serie B play-off success at the end of the 2007-08 season.
Despite leading the club back into Serie A the outgoing coach disagreed with the policies of the club's general manager and refused to continue his employment.
