Udinese has for the second time this football season a coach fired. The board agreed to the trust in Massimo Oddo, who since the end of november was responsible.
Massimo Oddo is sacked by Udinese.
The Croat Igor Tudor has been appointed as the new head coach. The 40-year-old former defender came as a player for a long time for Juventus.
The 41-year-old Oddo, former defender of AC Milan, followed in november the sacked Luigi Delneri. Delneri had to leave after he eight of the first twelve league games lost.
Oddo had a good start at Udinese, but the past few weeks, lost the club to eleven times in a row. After the defeat Saturday in the game against the laaggeklasseerde Crotone (1-2) decided the clubleiding to intervene.
Udinese is four rounds before the end on the fifteenth place. The advantage on the number eighteen SPAL is four points. The bottom three clubs (eighteen to twenty) relegate from Serie A.
