Dubai club sack ex-Italy coach Prandelli

Author: AFPFri, 2018-01-19 21:32ID: 1516375743755127500DUBAI: Dubai club Al-Nasr on Friday sacked Italian coach Cesare Prandelli amid a disappointing season, reinstating Serb Ivan Jovanovic who was previously in charge from 2013 to 2016.
“Al Nasr football company has decided to relieve Italian Cesare Prandelli from the post of technical director,” read a tweet from the club in the wake of a shock penalty shootout defeat to Dibba Al-Fujairah in the President’s Cup on Wednesday. They also lost their previous league game, 2-1 at home to Al-Sharjah.
Jovanovic, who helped the team become UAE league champions in 2015, is to succeed Prandelli, a second tweet said, accompanied by a photo of the Serbian coach.
Prandelli coached Italy to the final of Euro 2012 but left after their group-stage exit at the 2014 World Cup. He then had spells at Galatasaray and Valencia before moving to Al-Nasr last year. He leaves with Al-Nasr fourth in the table.
