REUTERS: Crotone have sacked head coach Giovanni Stroppa after a six-match losing run left the Calabrians rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table.

Stroppa led the club to the top flight for the second time in their history after they finished as runners-up in Serie B last season, but he struggled this term and departs with three wins from 24 games.

A 2-0 defeat to direct relegation rivals Cagliari on Sunday proved to be the final straw as it left Crotone in last place with 12 points, eight adrift of safety.

“Thus ends a beautiful and intense journey lasting almost three years, not without its difficult moments but culminating in an extraordinary survival and a second historic promotion to Serie A,” read a club statement.
