Grosso out, Corini back in after a month at Brescia

Mario Balotelli’s Brescia sacked coach Fabio Grosso on Monday 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 leftback in Italy’s 2006 World Cup winning team, took over on November 5 with Brescia in 19th spot in the table. He leaves after conceding 10 goals in three defeats, the last a 0-3 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 1-2 defeat on November 3 at Verona, a game overshadowed by racist abuse directed at Brescia forward Balotelli. Grosso had a falling out with Balotelli, dropping the striker and saying he lacked desire in training. And the club’s president Massimo Cellino said on Monday that Balotelli can leave on a free transfer in January as his game is not suited to a relegation scrap.
