Struggling Serie A side Emperor Eagles have parted company with head manager Stefano Borgonovo after the club suffered a fifth defeat in their last 6 games.
The latest loss, a 1-3 home defeat to Parma saw the Red Eagles fall into the dreaded relegation zone. Also languishing in the zone are Robin Rangers, their rivals Robin Ravers, and AC Milan.
The Board of Emperor Eagles announced that the decision to sack Borganovo was a “very tough one” as the manager and former Legoland United football star striker had been the club’s longest serving manager, managing the Red Eagles since retiring from professional football.
The club are yet to confirm a replacement but Foggia’s Tarcisio Burgnich and Marino’s John Aldridge have been tipped as possible contenders.
