Cosmi returns as Livorno coach

ROME - Coach Serse Cosmi has made peace with Livorno after quitting at the weekend and is back in charge of the Serie A strugglers, president Aldo Spinelli said on Tuesday.

Cosmi resigned after Sunday's 2-0 home defeat by fourth-placed Napoli, saying his relationship with the president had broken down.

"It wasn't hard to clarify things," Spinelli told Sky television.

"The marriage continues because it's in the club's interest and because of the good job he's done with us, the results we've had."

Cosmi took over the Tuscan side in October when they were bottom after Gennaro Ruotolo's sacking.

They are now 16th, two points above the relegation zone.
