The Udinese defeat has left them joint-bottom of the league. Bergodi was brought in after the resignation of Giovanni Stroppa earlier in the season, but he hasn't been able to turn the Abruzzo club's fortunes. Pescara are five points adrift of safety, and with what is probably the weakest squad in the league, Serie B beckons.
A statement on the club's website announced Bergodi's dismissal, thanking him for his "commitment and passion" in his time in charge. His successor they haven't yet revealed, though said they would do so in the next 24 hours. What a tease.
Unfortunately there won't be a return of the man who got them promoted last season, Zdeněk Zeman, due to Italy's one club per season rule. Zeman has already been sacked by Roma this year.
Reports suggest they'll promote their youth coach, Cristian Bucchi, into the role, as everyone knows when you're fighting against relegation it's good to have an inexperienced young coach who's never taken charge of a first team before at the helm. Still, he might lift the spirits, if nothing else.
