Since his reappointment, Salernitana have played one win and three losses in Serie A, including a loss to Hellas Verona on Monday.

After that defeat, Nicola was fired, leaving his former team 16th in the Italian top division with 16 games remaining in the season, 4 points and 2 places above the relegation battle.

The 49-year-old, whose former teams include Torino, Genoa, and Bari, departs the Stadio Arechi having won nine out of his 38 matches in charge. His second stint lasted just 29 days.
