Lazio, Torino, Monza and Verona Find Their Next Coaches

Lazio, Torino, Monza, and Hellas Verona have zeroed in on their preferred candidates to fill their openings. The official announcements should come fairly soon. The Biancocelesti will appoint Marco Baroni, who’s fresh off two successful campaigns with Lecce and the Scaligeri. He’ll ink a two-year contract and make €1.5M wages, La Gazzetta dello Sport informed.

Igor Tudor recently stepped down due to divergencies about the transfer market. President Claudio Lotito stated that the boss asked to change at least eight players. Their next boss was on Brianzoli’s shortlist. They’ll bounce back by appointing Alessandro Nesta, who’s familiar with CEO Adriano Galliani, Mediaset informs. He’ll sign a seasonal deal with an option. He has helmed Inter Miami, Perugia, Frosinone, and Reggiana in recent years.

Torino might need a little more time to finalize their hire than Lazio, Monza, and Hellas Verona. They’ll have to pay a €1M release clause to poach Paolo Vanoli from Venezia, Rai relays. He assisted Antonio Conte for a while before taking over Spartak Moscow and then the Lagunari in 2022.

Finally, Hellas Verona will turn to Paolo Zanetti, who has beaten out other candidates Massimo Donati and Andrea Sottil, L’Arena reports (via Goal). He’ll pen a two-year contract. He last managed Empoli and Venezia, getting axed on both occasions.

Our Take on Lazio, Monza, Torino, and Hellas Verona

Pretty risky choices all around, other than the Granata’s one. Baroni deserved to level up after two miraculous bids to avoid relegation, but time will tell whether a team of this caliber was a step too far. They could have been more ambitious. Nesta just had a solid season, while his previous ones were more suspect. Zanetti’s style has proven to be too offensive-minded and not effective enough for the relegation race.
