There is turmoil in Cagliari

There is great ferment in Cagliari. The red-blue team, restarted from Serie B after the relegation suffered last season, is making far less than expected and is far behind the big names in the standings.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Fabio Liverani’s position would be at risk: decisive for the Lazio coach’s fate is the match scheduled for next Saturday at the Unipol Domus against Reggina.

As far as the management is concerned, a super-name has bounced back and it is that of Leonardo: according to reports by L’Unione Sarda, the Brazilian is a longtime friend of President Giulini, who already offered him the Rossoblù bench in 2017.

It remained in the history of Italian soccer the Scudetto won by Cagliari at the end of the 1969-70 season. Manlio Scopigno was on the bench while the team’s star was Gigi Riva: the bomber scored 21 goals, boasting the title of top scorer for the third time in just four years. Riva ended his very long experience on the island in 1977, having scored something like 164 goals.
