Udinese appoint Stramaccioni

The 38-year-old, who has been out of work since he left Inter in 2013, joins the club on a two-year deal and will be presented to the press on Friday

Udinese have announced that they have appointed Andrea Stramaccioni as their new coach.

The 38-year-old has been out of work since he parted ways with Inter in May 2013 after just over a year in charge at San Siro.

The Rome-born coach replaces Francesco Guidolin, who left Udinese at the end of the season, bringing an end to his four-year reign.

In a statement on their official website, the Serie A side, who finished 13th in 2013-14, revealed that Stramaccioni will take over the first team this summer on a two-year deal.

"Udinese Calcio can announce that we have entrusted the technical management of the first-team to Mr. Andrea Stramaccioni," the statement read.

"The relationship with the coach will commence from July 1, 2014 and will last two years. The presentation of the new Zebrette coach will be on Friday June 6."
