15th place in the Serie C after 8 matches (9 points; 3W-1-D-4L),  former Lazio midfielder Giuliano Giannichedda has been sacked by Pro Piacenza; former Laziale Cristian Ledesma is the captain of this side whilst 19-year-old Federico Marchesi is on loan.

This is the official statement on the website of the Emilia-based company surrounding the situation: “Pro Piacenza communicates that we have released Giuliano Giannichedda and Antonello Mattei respectively from the position of coach of the first team. The company thanks both for the work done in recent months with great professionalism, seriousness, and dedication, wishing them the best fortunes for the continuation of their career”.

Giannichedda had been in charge of the side since July of 2018 – his methods did not seem to be working for the side and after a series of 4 losses (the most recent to rivals Piacenza), his time had unfortunately come to an end.
