Brescia manager Roberto Boscaglia was really a dead man walking as soon as Massimo Cellino took over as owner in August, and now he has made his move.

Tuttomercatoweb report Cellino has fired Boscaglia and is working on appointing a replacement. SkySport Italia also report Cellino's decision.

Cellino took over the Serie B side two months ago after selling his remaining 50 per cent stake in Leeds United in June.

He had sold the other 50 per cent to Andrea Radrizzani in January.

Cellino's time at Leeds United saw him sack six managers in three years; Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn, Uwe Rosler, and Steve Evans.

At former club Cagliari he fired 36 managers in 22 years, earning him the reputation as 'manager eater' in Italy.

Now he has struck again, with Brescia sat in 16th place of 22 teams in Serie B, with two wins from eight games.
