Brescia have sacked Eugenio Corini after their seventh defeat of the season, a  2-1 defeat at the hands of Hellas Verona.

Brescia sits 18th in Seria after their seventh defeat of the season.

They are in the relagation zone with only seven points out of a possible 30.

According to the clubs official website, bresciacalcio.it in a very breif statement , Corini was dismissed.

The statement read:

“Brescia Calcio club announce the dismissal of coach Eugenio Corini.”

Corini has been at the club since 2018. He over saw their promotion from Serie B back into the top flight.

They were promted as Serie B champions.

The adventure into Serie A has not quite gone to plan.

With a record of two wins, a draw and seven defeats club president Massimo Cellino has decide that change is needed.

The aqusition of Italian star and bad boy Mario Balotelli was thought to bring the team some much needed Serie A experince.

He would hoepfully also bring some much needed fire power.

Unfortunely, Balotelli has failed to inspire. The team has only socred ten goals so far this seaosn, and conceeded 16.

There has been no annoucement of an interim manager or any possible replacement.

Accordin to Sky Sports Italia, there is one front runner, out of four potential candidates.

Diego Lopez is the bookies favourite, as he has worked with the club president Cellino before.

The other honorable mentions are Davide Nicola, Beppe Iachini and Cesare Prandelli.

can anyone else really do much better, given the lmited resources that the club has.

Corini did well to get the club into the top flight. It is no secret staying their is much harder.
