ROME (Reuters) - Udinese have sacked head coach Luca Gotti, the club announced on Tuesday, after his side won one of their last 13 Serie A games.

Monday’s 3-1 defeat at Empoli left Udinese in 14th place, six points above the relegation zone, and on a four-match run without a win.

“The most profound thanks go to the coach for our years together. The club wishes Gotti the best professional fortune the rest of his career,” read a Udinese statement.

Gotti joined in November 2019 and twice led them to mid-table finishes, coming 13th in 2019-20 and 14th a year later.
