Six points from twelve rounds wasn't enough to stop Giuseppe Sannino from getting fired. And achieving a goalless draw against AC Milan just isn't what it used to be. Holding the rossoneri to a point is no longer something to put on your resume. And so, after three months with Sannino in charge, it's back to the drawing board for Chievo.
So who next? Is there anyone that can keep this rag-tag bunch of players in Serie A? It may be Eugenio Corini. He was brought in last October when Chievo were in 18th, and managed to bring them up to 12th by the end of the season. But despite that accomplishment, the two agreed to part ways, and Chievo picked up Sannino, despite his inability to keep Palermo from getting relegated.
It's also possible that Domenico Di Carlo will return. Which kind of makes you wonder about the Flying Donkeys' thought process. It was Di Carlo that was sacked last season in favor of Corini, after the former lost five of the opening six matches.
Or there's always the option of accepting the inevitable and having some fun with it. Rino Gattuso is available. And it's almost certain Massimiliano Allegri will be able to move sides soon.
