Filippo Inzaghi has been sacked by Salernitana and replaced by Fabio Liverani, Serie A's bottom club announced.

In two separate statements Salernitana said Inazghi had been dismissed after just four months in charge and Liverani brought in, without specifying the length of his contract.

Media report that former Italy midfielder Liverani, whose last job at Cagliari ended with his dismissal in December 2022, has been hired until the end of the season.

Inzaghi arrived in October to replace Paulo Sousa but failed to turn results around, Friday's 3-1 home defeat to fellow strugglers Empoli ending his short reign in southern Italy.

Salernitana are rock bottom in Italy's top flight after winning just two of their 24 matches.

Six defeats in their last seven have left the Salerno-based club seven points from safety having played a game more than most of their relegation rivals.
