Reggina swap Orlandi for Pillon

Reggina have appointed Giuseppe Pillon as their new coach after parting company with Nevio Orlandi after Sunday's 2-0 home defeat by Sampdoria left the Calabrian club second from bottom in Serie A.

Giuseppe PillonPillon returns to the Italian top flight after just over a year out, since he was sacked by Chievo at the start of the 2006/07 season.

The 52-year-old spent last term at the helm of Serie B side Treviso but having guided them to safety he parted company during the summer.

He arrives at Reggina to replace Orlandi, who departs after a return of just 12 points from the first 16 games.

A former youth coach, the 54-year-old stepped up for his first experience with a senior side in March to replace the sacked Renzo Ulivieri, and went on to lead the side to safety thanks to key end-of-season wins against Catania and Empoli.

He was subsequently confirmed as coach for the current campaign but has been unable to inspire last season's heroics.
