Fiorentina have sacked coach Sergio Buso and replaced him with Dino Zoff.

Buso had only been charge of the Viola since the autumn after the club sacked previous coach Emiliano Mondonico in late October. However the 2-1 home defeat to Roma at the weekend, proved to be the final straw for the beleaguered coach.

Zoff has bee out of work since 2001 and is relishing a return to the game.

“I’m charged up and ready to start,” said Zoff after his appointment was confirmed.
