LIVORNO, Italy (AP) - Relegation-threatened Livorno has fired coach Domenico Di Carlo and rehired Davide Nicola following a 3-0 loss at AC Milan.

The Tuscan club announced the move on its website on Saturday, with four rounds remaining in Serie A.

The defeat left Livorno second from bottom, two points above last-place Catania and three behind Sassuolo and Bologna.

The bottom three clubs will be relegated.

Nicola was fired in January, then Attilio Perotti, the club sporting director, was put in charge for a week before Di Carlo was hired.

In 34 matches, Livorno has won just six, with seven draws and 21 losses.

Last season, Nicola led Livorno up from Serie B.
