Aglietti arrives in Brescia

The day after Pep Clotet was exonerated from his role as coach of Brescia, the Lombard club’s president Massimo Cellino spoke, explaining the decision to end the relationship with the Spanish coach but also the arrival of Alfredo Aglietti as the new leader of the Rondinelle.

“This exoneration was forced. Some facts and attitudes pushed me to make this decision. I did not have in mind to send Clotet away. I had sent the team to work at San Filippo as a punishment, I expected a call from Pep that angry he would take a stand. By doing so he would take the team back. But he didn’t. So it was obvious that he wanted to get himself kicked out,” the Brescia number 1 said in an interview with ‘Il Giornale di Brescia’.

The biancazzurri are coming off a bad spell in the league, where they have won only one point in the last four games played, which has made them move away from the top of the standings. In fact, the Brescia team occupies the tenth position, minus twelve from the leading Frosinone.
