The decision has been a long time coming, as De Biasi's Torino have not performed well and have been too inconsistent. Club president Urbano Cairo sacked his coach today following a catastrophic 4-1 loss to Fiorentina on Sunday.
De Biasi has been under immense
pressure in recent weeks following a succession of poor results, but the last of those at home to the Viola left the Turin club languishing one spot above the relegation places on goal difference.
According to reports, De Biasi is expected to be replaced by former Granata coach Walter Novellino, with an announcement likely to be made in the next few hours.
De Biasi follows in the unfortunate
footsteps of Stefano Colantuono, Daniele Arrigoni and Beppe Iachini,
as Serie A coaches who have lost their jobs this season.
