CARPI, Italy (AP) - Last-place Carpi has named Giuseppe Sannino its new coach a day after firing Fabrizio Castori six matches into its first Serie A season.

Carpi says Sannino signed a contract through the end of the season.

The 58-year-old Sannino has previously managed Siena, Palermo, Chievo Verona, Watford and Catania.

Castori’s removal came two days after a 5-1 loss to Roma left Carpi with just two points.

Castori had taken over Carpi in June of last year and led the club to the Serie B title last season, earning promotion to the top division for the first time in its 106-year history.

Having had to face Inter Milan, surprise leader Fiorentina, Napoli and title challenger Roma already, Carpi has scored just six goals and conceded a league-worst 15 goals.
