By: Manu Tournoux

The waltz of coaches continues in Europe, more precisely in Italy. Paying the price for a long series of poor results, Alessio Dionisi was sacked from his position as coach by Sassuolo on February 26. After offering Emiliano Bigica the interim position, the Neroverdi set out to find his potential successor. If the name of Fabio Grosso, in search of a new challenge after the end of his adventure at Olympique Lyonnais, circulated for a time among the residents of the Mapei Stadium, it turns out that the current 18th in Serie A finally bet on Davide Ballardini.

“US Sassuolo Calcio announces that it has appointed Davide Ballardini as technical director of the first team until June 30, 2024. With him, collaborators Carlo Regno, Nicola Tarroni and Daniele Caleca will join the team staff first. The Company sincerely thanks Emiliano Bigica for his availability and professionalism. The coach returns to coach the Primavera», announced the transalpine club via an official press release this Friday. At the end of a short experience which turned sour in Cremonese (Serie B), the 60-year-old technician will try to redo his cherry by allowing the Emilia-Romagna team to remain in the first division.
