Arrigoni gets Bologna job
Monday 11 June, 2007

Daniele Arrigoni has been named as the new Coach of Serie B side Bologna, the club has confirmed.

The Rossoblu fired Renzo Ulivieri in April and the running of the team was handed to his assistant Luca Cecconi, who led them to seventh place in the Serie B table.

“Bologna announce that they have hired Daniele Arrigoni for the 2007-08 season. The new Coach will be unveiled on Tuesday afternoon at the Niccolo Galli Technical Centre,” read a note on the club’s website.

“We wish to thank Luca Cecconi for the professionalism and dedication shown towards Bologna,” added the statement.

Arrigoni, a former defender, made his debut as a Coach with Castel San Pietro in Serie D, followed by spells with Vis Pesaro, Messina, Palermo and Frosinone.

In 2004-05, he was called to Coach Cagliari in Serie A, leading them to a 12th place finish, and then joined Torino, before the Granata’s financial troubles.

He was recalled to Cagliari in 2005-06, when he resigned after heavy protests from the supporters.

In the last season he moved to Livorno, becoming the first man to Coach the club in Europe, but was replaced by Fernando Orsi in March.

He had already been fired once by the Amaranto in mid-January before being saved by the Livorno players, who had threatened President Aldo Spinelli with a revolt unless Arrigoni was reinstated.
