After a good start, Livorno seems to have lost the way. They have lost 3 games in a row, 5 consecutive on the road and they have slipped into the relegation zone. The young coach Davide Nicola is in the hot seat as Spinelli is said to be infuriated after the humiliating 3-0 loss against Chievo.
Spinelli and the other executive are currently having a meeting to decide the fate of Nicola. It is reported by Gianluca Di Marzio and Tuttomercatoweb that the name in the mix for the bench are Davide Ballardini and Domenico Di Carlo. Edy Reja has been contacted too, but he wants to see first how the Petkovic situation at Lazio evolves as he might get that job soon.
