Former Perugia coach Cristian Bucchi was named as the new boss of Serie A side Sassuolo on Tuesday, after Eusebio di Francesco left to take over at Roma last week.

Former Napoli forward Bucchi led Perugia to a fourth-placed finish in the Italian second tier last season, but they lost in the play-off semi-finals to Benevento, who went on to win promotion to the top flight. The 40-year-old was also in charge at Pescara in Serie A for 11 matches in 2013, although they drew one game and lost 10 with him at the helm on the way to relegation.

Sassuolo finished 12th last term, after Di Francesco had taken them into the Europa League in 2016 with a sixth-placed effort.
