(Reuters) – Brescia have sacked coach Fabio Grosso after a string of poor results left the northern side bottom of Serie A, the club said in a statement on Monday.

Former Italy international Grosso is being replaced by Eugenio Corini, whom he took over from in early November, Brescia said in a statement.

Brescia, who were beaten 3-0 at home by neighbours Atalanta on Saturday, have seven points from 13 games.

They next face second-bottom SPAL away on Sunday.
