Cagliari have sacked coach Massimo Rastelli.
The club is 13th in the Serie A table having managed just six points from eight league matches.
Massimo Rastelli sack comes two days after a 3-2 home loss to previously winless Genoa.
It was the Sardinian club’s sixth loss in eight matches, fourth straight defeat and third consecutive at home.
It is the longest the Italian league has gone without a firing since 1998, when Luigi Simoni was fired by Inter Milan after the 11th round.
In a statement, Cagliari thanked Rastelli for leading the club to the Serie B title in 2016 and an 11th place finish in the top division last season.
A replacement was not immediately named.
