Sporting director Attilio Perotti was appointed but he lasted only a week after protests from the ultras and a dismal 3-0 loss at Roma.

Domenico Di Carlo, who ended his playing career at Livorno, was hired on Tuesday.

Livorno is level on points with last-place Catania. Sassuolo, which has four points more, completes the bottom three.

TURNING POINT

Inter Milan forward Diego Milito believes a good result at bottom club Catania on Sunday could put an end to the Nerazzurri’s miserable streak.

Milito has played two full matches this year since returning from his second serious injury of 2013 and the Argentine is keen now to once again find the back of the net.

“I would love it to be me who scores a goal, but it is important to get a victory against Catania,” Milito said. “The squad is working well and we’re up for it. We hope we can win. The match could be the turning point.”

Inter has lost three of its past four matches in all competitions and has won just one of its past eight league matches.
