Donadoni appointed new Napoli coach

Donadoni appointed new Napoli coach

Former Italy coach Roberto Donadoni was appointed as the new coach of Napoli after Edy Reja was sacked on Tuesday.
Donadoni had been out of work since being fired as the coach of the Azzurri following the disappointing showing at Euro 2008, where they were eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual winner Spain.
Reja was at the helm of Napoli for five seasons and guided it from the third division to first. This season the team started strongly and appeared to be on course for a European place.
However, it dropped down the Serie A table in recent months, losing nine consecutive matches, though recently club president Aurelio de Laurentiis said Reja's job was not under threat.
Napoli was 11th in the 20-team standings.
Donadoni's first match in charge is away to Reggina on Sunday.
