Cagliari in talks with Francesco Calzona


Cagliari have initiated contact with former Napoli coach Francesco Calzona in their search to replace Claudio Ranieri. Following their promotion to Serie A and subsequent successful campaign to avoid relegation, the Rossoblù are now focused on securing a replacement before the start of the transfer window.

Sky Sport Italia report that yesterday, Cagliari held discussions with Francesco Calzona, the current head coach of the Slovak national team and former assistant at Napoli. Club president Tommaso Giulini is well-acquainted with Calzona, who previously served as an assistant coach under Eusebio Di Francesco at Cagliari.

However, Calzona has expressed a desire not to commit to any new positions until after the conclusion of the European Championships with Slovakia. This raises the question of whether Cagliari will wait until at least June 26th to appoint their new head coach or if they will pursue other potential candidates who might be available sooner.

The club’s decision on this matter will significantly impact their ability to plan for the upcoming season and make necessary moves in the transfer market.
