Soccer: Sassuolo sack Malesani after just five matches
Bottom side reinstate Di Francesco03 March, 18:38
The promoted northern Italian side, who have 17 points from 26 games, have reinstated former boss Eusebio Di Francesco.
Sassuolo were third-bottom when Di Francesco was dismissed late in January. Malesani is the 12th Serie A coach to get the sack this season, including Di Francesco's dismissal. AC Milan, Bologna, Lazio, Genoa, Sampdoria and Chievo have also changed coaches this term, while relegation-threatened Catania and Livorno have both switched twice.
