Catania appoint Giampaolo as coach

MILAN, May 30 (Reuters) - Catania have named former Siena boss Marco Giampaolo as their new coach, the Serie A club said in a statement on Sunday.

The 42-year-old, sacked by Siena in October as the Serie A side headed for relegation, has signed a one-year deal.

He replaces Sinisa Mihajlovic, who surprisingly resigned last week after comfortably securing safety last term for the modest Sicilian club.

The Serb wanted to manage a bigger team and has held talks with Fiorentina while media reports have also linked him with Inter Milan.
