Serie A's bottom club Chievo Verona announced on Tuesday that they have parted company with coach Giuseppe Sannino.

The 56-year-old Sannino only arrived at Chievo in the summer but was relieved of his duties after a run of six defeats and two draws in their last eight outings which left them three points adrift of Catania at the foot of the table.

Before joining Chievo, Sannino was in charge of Palermo, overseeing their relegation from Italian Serie A at the end of last season.

Chievo face local rivals Hellas Verona in their next fixture on November 23.
