Donadoni replaces Bisoli at struggling Cagliari
Cagliari have parted company with head coach Pierpaolo Bisoli after a run of four defeats in six games, with former Italy boss Roberto Donadoni replacing him at the Rossoblu helm.
Bisoli, 43, took charge of the Sardinians this summer after guiding Cesena to a historic promotion to Italy's top flight.
But Cagliari's 1-0 loss to Genoa on Sunday saw the club drop to 17th in the Serie A table with 11 points from 12 games and the club have now turned to Donadoni - who has been out of work since being sacked by Napoli last season - to turn their season around.
A club statement confirmed: "Cagliari Calcio and Pierpaolo Bisoli have reached an agreement to end their working relationship. Unfortunately, in football you depend on results and many times you are forced to take decisions that contrast with human feelings.
"Bisoli is and will always be a great coach. From this adventure he can leave with his head held high because of the technical and human characteristics that he has.''
Bisoli is the third Serie A coach to be dismissed this season following that of Franco Colomba of Bologna and Gian Piero Gasperini of Genoa.
