The 49-year-old takes over from Attilio Perotti, who only replaced sacked Davide Nicola on January 13.

A statement from Livorno read: "Livorno announces that this (Tuesday) afternoon, the new coach of the Amaranto's first team Domenico Di Carlo will be unveiled to the media."

Livorno lost 3-0 at Roma on Saturday in what was Perotti's first game in charge.

The sacking of Nicola and the appointment of Perotti as his replacement had not been welcomed by the club fans.

Saturday's loss was Livorno's fifth consecutive defeat and dropped the Tuscan outfit to 19th place, with 13 points from 20 games.

Di Carlo, who played one season at Livorno, last coached in Serie A when he guided Chievo in the 2011-12 campaign.

His first game in charge will be at home to Sassuolo on Sunday.

Perotti, meanwhile, is expected to return to his role as technical director of the club, a position he held prior to being named as Nicola's successor.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
