Franck Ribery Joins Salernitana Coaching Staff as Stefano Colantuono Takes Charge Amid Turmoil

Salernitana, Serie A’s bottom team, has announced the appointment of Stefano Colantuono as their fourth coach of the season, signaling a fresh start amid ongoing struggles. Colantuono steps in to replace Fabio Liverani, who was sacked after a brief stint in charge.

The decision to bring in Colantuono comes amidst a challenging season for Salernitana, who have endured managerial changes and disappointing results. Liverani’s departure follows a series of coaching reshuffles, including the short-lived tenure of Filippo Inzaghi and the earlier dismissal of Paulo Sousa.

With just two wins this season and facing a 12-point gap from safety with nine matches remaining, Salernitana is in dire need of a turnaround. Colantuono, familiar with the club from previous coaching spells, has been tasked with the challenging mission of steering the team away from relegation.

In a surprising twist, former France international Franck Ribery is set to join Salernitana’s coaching staff as Colantuono’s assistant. Ribery, who retired as a player at Salernitana, brings experience and expertise to the role, offering a fresh perspective to the struggling team.

Ribery’s appointment underscores Salernitana’s commitment to revitalizing the club and finding innovative solutions to improve their performance on the field. As the Serie A season approaches its conclusion, all eyes will be on Colantuono and Ribery as they strive to guide Salernitana to safety in the league standings.
