Soccer: Catania sack De Canio, reinstate Maran
Struggling Sicilian side take action after Cup humbling16 January, 16:24
The Sicilian club put De Canio in charge in October after a poor start to the season, but their form failed to improve under him and the last straw was Wednesday's embarrassing 4-1 defeat to second division Siena in an Italian Cup match.
De Canio's is Serie A's ninth coach sacking of the season, including Maran's. AC Milan, Livorno, Bologna, Lazio, Genoa, Sampdoria and Chievo have also changed coaches.
