Christmas spirit missing at Udinese
by Paul Kennedy, December 23rd, 2009 7AM

MOST COMMENTED

Mark Hughes fired at Manchester City on Saturday. Michael Oenning sacked at Nuremberg on Monday. Pasquale Marino shown the door at Udinese on Tuesday. Clubs in Europe's top leagues have no mercy, even during Christmas week. Udinese's move upped the number of Serie A teams to change coaches this season to nine.

Marino, 47, was replaced by former Torino boss Gianni De Biasi at Udinese, which has slumped to a tie for 14th place, five points above the relegation zone.

Udinese has a game in hand. Sunday's home game with Cagliari was postponed. Play in Serie A resumes Jan. 6.

Other teams to replace their coaches are Roma, Atalanta, Napoli, Livorno, Bologna, Siena, Palermo and Catania.
