Pescara appoints Bucchi as manager

Pescara, Italy (Sports Network) - Pescara confirmed on Wednesday the club has appointed Christian Bucchi as manager following the sacking of Cristiano Bergodi last week.

Bucchi, 36, formerly managed the club's youth squad and becomes the side's third manager of the season as well as the youngest manager in Italy's top flight, one year younger than 37-year-old Andrea Stramaccioni of Inter Milan.

Bergodi was sacked after a 1-0 defeat to Udinese dropped Pescara to the bottom of the table on 21 points from 27 matches this term.

Bucchi's appointment is the 12th to be made in Serie A since the campaign began in late August.

Bucchi will make his managerial debut with Pescara's first team when the club faces Atalanta on Sunday.
