Chievo, bottom of the table with six points, said that Sannino, who took over at the start of the season, had been dismissed after 12 league games in charge.

"Chievo inform that coach Giuseppe Sannino and his staff have been relieved of their responsibilities," said the Verona-based club, who drew 0-0 at home with AC Milan on Sunday, in a statement.

"The club offers the boss and his staff its deepest thanks for their effort, professionalism and dedication and wishes him the best for his future career."

Sannino was in charge of Siena in the 2011-12 season, where he did well to keep them in Serie A, and last year had two stints at turbulent Sicilian club Palermo.

He was fired after only three matches, then returned later in the season for a failed attempt to save them from relegation.
