The news is yet to be made official, but the die is cast: Davide Ballardini will replace Stefano Pioli as Bologna boss.
Hours after Stefano Pioli’s sacking rumours are being confirmed that Ballardini will take over Bologna’s bench. His contract is said to be worth €350,000 for the next six months, with performance bonuses should Bologna stave off relegation.
The news will be made official after tomorrow morning’s meeting between Bologna management and Ballardini, which should seal the deal between the parts.
Ballardini has coached 172 games, winning 55 games (32%), drawing 48 (28%), and losing 69 (40%).
