LIVORNO, Italy (AP) - Livorno has hired Domenico Di Carlo as its coach, its third of the season.

Di Carlo, who ended his playing career at Livorno, replaces Attilio Perotti, who has lasted only a week.

Perotti, the club’s sporting director, was put in charge after Davide Nicola was fired following seven defeats in Livorno’s previous eight Serie A matches.

However, the reaction of the ultras and a dismal 3-0 loss at Roma has seen the club make a move for Di Carlo on Tuesday.

Di Carlo’s last job was in charge of Chievo Verona, where he was fired in October 2012 despite having signed a new contract a few months earlier following an impressive first season in charge.

Livorno is level on points with last-place Catania.
