With only 1 win, last-place Chievo fires Sannino

VERONA, Italy (AP) Bottom-placed Chievo Verona has fired its coach Giuseppe Sannino and rehired Eugenio Corini after winning just one of its opening 12 matches in Serie A.

Chievo made the announcement on its website Tuesday, two days after holding AC Milan to a goalless home draw.

Corini, who coached Chievo last season and helped the club avoid relegation, has penned a two-year contract.

Chievo has six points and has scored a league-worst seven goals.

It's the fourth coaching change in Serie A this season.

Delio Rossi was fired by Sampdoria on Monday, with Fabio Liverani (Genoa) and Rolando Maran (Catania) having also been dismissed this season.

Chievo's next match is a derby versus Hellas Verona on Nov. 23.
