Marco Giampaolo led Cesena to just three points before being fired by the Seahorses. Can their next coach manage to pull them up from the relegation zone?

Cesena have fired coach Marco Giampaolo after Sunday's loss to Parma, according to Filippo Ricci of La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Seahorses appointed Giampaolo in June, after a mutual agreement to part ways with Massimo Ficcadenti, who had kept the club up for the 2010-2011 season.

But Cesena are back in the relegation zone, having collected just three points thus far in Serie A and recording no wins. The Seahorses have scored a meager three goals, despite having had what appeared to be a promising summer. But not even Adrian Mutu has managed to inspire the club to victory.

Giampaolo spent half of last season with Catania before being fired in January. Previously, he had been fired from Siena, also after just ten rounds. Perhaps it would've been best for Cesena to keep Ficcadenti, considering Cagliari are currently in eighth place with a game in hand, and have drawn with both Napoli and Udinese while beating AS Roma.

Who now, Cesena? I suggest using Mutu as coach. I mean, it can't get worse, right?
