Italian side Novara fire new coach after just 37 days Add to ...

Serie A’s second-bottom club Novara have sacked coach Emiliano Mondonico after 37 days in charge and reappointed the man he replaced - Attilio Tesser.



The northern side, who announced the move in a club statement on Tuesday, won at Inter Milan under Mondonico but also lost three times and drew twice to lie 12 points adrift of safety with a quick return to Serie B highly likely.



Italian clubs often recall previously sacked managers to the hot seat because they remain on the payroll but Tesser’s comeback has been speedy even by Serie A’s often bizarre standards.
