ROME, Nov 13 - Struggling Serie A side Ascoli have sacked their coach Attilio
Tesser after losing 1-0 to Empoli at the weekend.
Ascoli have yet to win a league match this season. Sunday's defeat, the
club's third in a row, left them 17th out of 20 teams in the division with four
points from 11 games.
It was the second time Tesser had been sacked from a club in Italy's top
flight. His only previous experience of coaching a Serie A side was at Cagliari
last year, where he was dismissed after the first game of the season.
Ascoli have not named his replacement.
