Maran has paid the price for the club's woeful start to the new Serie A season, which has seen them win just one of their opening eight matches.

A 2-1 defeat to Cagliari on Saturday proved the final straw, with Maran now making way for De Canio.

A statement on Catania's official website read: "Calcio Catania announces that it has dismissed the coach of the first team Mr Rolando Maran, who we offer our most heartfelt thanks to for the work he has done and best wishes for his future career."

De Canio has been without a club since being sacked by Genoa in October 2012 after a six-month spell at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
