Colantuono to replace Stramaccioni at Udinese
Udinese have announced Stefano Colantuono will replace Andrea Stramaccioni from the start of next season following a frustrating campaign.
The 52-year-old will be tasked with sparking an upturn in fortunes, after the club finished 16th in Serie A this term - just seven points clear of the relegation zone.
After ending the season with four successive defeats, Udinese opted to part company with Stramaccioni.
And a club statement on Thursday read: "Udinese announces that it has entrusted the technical management of the first team to Stefano Colantuono.
"The relationship with the coach will start from 1 July 2015, and will last two years."
