Udinese have appointed Pasquale Marino as a replacement for Gianni De Biasi, who was sacked as coach on Sunday following the 3-0 defeat at Genoa.
The loss left left the Italian Serie A club precariously positioned just a point above the relegation zone.
Former Torino boss De Biasi only replaced Marino in December but results did not improve and Saturday’s defeat was the last straw for club directors.
“Udinese announce that Pasquale Marino and his staff have been reappointed as coaches of the first team,” a club statement said.
Italian clubs regularly recall sacked managers because they are still on the payroll if their contracts were not resolved and are therefore cheaper to employ than other coaches.
