Ascoli have appointed Nedo Sonetti as their new coach following Monday’s dismissal of Attilio Tesser.
Sonetti, 65, has huge experience in Serie A having previously coached Bologna, Torino and Atalanta. He coached Ascoli during the 1990-91 season, in which he gained promotion to the top flight.
“The problem is believing in themselves,” Sonetti told a press conference.
“They need to be self-motivated, firstly at an individual level and then as a group.”
Tesser was fired after his side’s failure to win any of their 11 league matches this season. They are currently fourth from bottom with four points.
