Corini returns to replace Sannino at Chievo

Serie A side Chievo have confirmed the return of Eugenio Corini as coach, after the exit of Giuseppe Sannino on Tuesday.

The last game of Sannino's tenure saw Chievo draw 0-0 against Milan at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi, a result that saw the hosts' winless run extended to eight matches. 

Corini will tasked with moving the club off the bottom of the table, having led them to a 12th-placed finish in Serie A last term.

In a statement, the club explained: "AC Chievo Verona announces that it has entrusted the conduct of the First Team to Eugenio Corini.

"The agreement is reached on a biennial basis (two-year deal)."

The first game of Corini's second stint in charge will see Chievo take on local rivals Verona on November 23.
