World Cup winner sacked as Brescia manager after just 3 matches
Fabio Grosso had fallen out with star player Mario Balotelli.

BRESCIA HAVE SACKED coach Fabio Grosso after just three matches and brought back Eugenio Corini, who the club at the bottom of Serie A axed less than a month ago.

Grosso, 41, the left back in Italy’s 2006 World Cup winning team, took over on November 5 with Brescia in 19th in the table. 

He leaves after conceding 10 goals in three defeats, the last a 3-0 home loss to Atalanta on Saturday.

The former Inter Milan and Juventus defender started his coaching career with Juventus’ youth teams followed by a campaign at Serie B side Bari before leading Hellas Verona last season.

Corini was sacked after a 2-1 defeat on November 3 at Verona, a game overshadowed by racist abuse directed at Brescia forward Mario Balotelli. 

Grosso had a falling out with Balotelli, the club’s biggest star, dropping the striker and saying he lacked desire in training.
