Serie A strugglers Cagliari on Sunday confirmed the sacking of Diego Lopez, who will be replaced by former coach Ivo Pulga.
Cagliari on Sunday suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Roma and although seven points clear of the drop zone club president Massimo Cellino announced Pulga's return.
In a telephone call to domestic news agency ANSA, Cellino said: "I've sacked Lopez, Pulga will be returning."
Cellino, who recently saw his bid to take over Leeds United thwarted by a court decision over unpaid tax on an imported yacht, said recent results had left him with no choice.
