After two wins from 16 Serie A matches this season, Struggling Parma has sacked coach Fabio Liverani and reappointed Roberto D’Aversa as the boss, the club said on Thursday.
Liverani, 44, only took over in August, replacing D’Aversa, but leaves the Northern Italian club after a 3-0 loss at Atalanta on Wednesday, leaving them in 18th position in the relegation zone on 12 points in the standings.
‘Parma Calcio 1913 may confirm that Fabio Liverani was relieved of the first team’s duties as a coach.
‘In their future endeavors, the club would like to thank Liverani and his team and wish them all the best,’ read a club statement.
From December 2016 to August 2020, D’Aversa, 45, whose Parma contract still runs until June 2022, coached the club.
In what will be D’Aversa’s first match back at the club, Parma host eighth-placed Lazio on Sunday.
