Bari sacked coach Giampiero Ventura and replaced him with Bortolo Mutti, the struggling Italian side said today. Bari said the separation with Ventura had come by mutual consent with the club languishing last in Serie A, seven points behind second-bottom Cesena and nine from safety.

Ventura joined Bari in June 2009.

Mutti last coached at Atalanta during the second half of the last Serie A season but was not retained in the summer after the club was relegated.
