Italian side Chievo Verona have confirmed the appointment of Eugenio Corini for a second spell in a year as their new manager on a reported two-year deal.

On 2 October 2012, the 43-year-old was named new head coach of Chievo in place of Domenico Di Carlo, after the team suffered five consecutive defeats in the first six games of the season.

Corini and Chievo parted ways on 29 May 2013 by mutual consent.

His appointment comes after the sacking of Giuseppe Sannino earlier on Tuesday after four months in charge, with with Chievo having have won just one and lost eight of their opening 12 games.

Sunday’s goalless draw with AC Milan was not enough to save Sannino’s post as it extended Chievo’s winless run to eight games and left the Verona club rock bottom of the Serie A log, four points adrift of safety.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Chievo Verona announces that it has entrusted the
conduct of the first team to Eugenio Corini.

“The agreement is based on a two-year contract.”
