Pescara have appointed former defender Cristiano Bergodi as their new coach following Giovanni Stroppa's resignation at the weekend.

Stroppa stepped down from his role in the wake of the Abruzzo outfit's 1-0 defeat against fellow Serie A strugglers Siena on Sunday.

The loss was their third in four league games in a run that has seen Pescara slide into the relegation zone, although it is hoped Bergodi can stop the rot.

"Cristiano Bergodi is the new coach of Pescara," the club said on their official website.

"The signature arrived this morning in the presence of president (Daniele) Sebastiani and director of sport (Daniele) Delli Carri.

"The new Biancazzuro coach will be presented at 1pm (BST) and after that he will travel to the training ground to meet his players."

The 48-year-old represented Pescara for five years from 1984 before he moved on to Lazio, where he made his name with 160 appearances.

After announcing his retirement from playing in 2000, Bergodi went on to manage CFR Cluj and had a temporary spell at fellow Romanian outfit Steaua Bucharest.

He has never managed in the top-flight of Italian football but was in charge of second-tier side Modena last year.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
