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.
