Serie A sackings: Every coach in the 2023/24 season

Serie A clubs are known for having very little patience with their coaches, and it can be hard to keep up with who is in charge of which club at any given point in a season. We have listed every Serie A coach in 2023/24 here.


Serie A coaches aren’t known to last long in jobs, with club presidents and decision-makers often trigger-happy and willing to cut ties without much hesitation. It’s not uncommon in Serie A to see the same coach have multiple spells in charge of the same club throughout a given season, and it can be hard to keep up with who is in charge of which club at any point of a campaign.

The 2023/24 Serie A season started off as a relatively calm one for the coaching carousel, though, with far fewer changes than might have been expected in the first half of the season. After Christmas and into 2024, though, things started to pick up pace.

The most remarkable coaching changes have come at AS Roma where Daniele De Rossi succeeded Jose Mourinho, and Roberto D’Aversa was sacked by Lecce after headbutting Hellas Verona forward Thomas Henry on the pitch after a 1-0 home defeat in Salento.

Serie A coach sackings: Every manager in 2023/24

It didn’t take too long for the first sacking of 2023/24, with Empoli relieving Paolo Zanetti of his duties on September 19, 2023. Two more coaches followed in being dismissed as Salernitana sacked Paulo Sousa on October 10 and Udinese gave Andrea Sottil the boot two weeks later on October 24.

The first sacking of the new year 2024 came in the Eternal City, where Jose Mourinho was dismissed by AS Roma on January 16, just days after a disappointing loss at AC Milan had followed a Derby della Capitale defeat and Coppa Italia elimination at the hands of Lazio.

Though Maurizio Sarri outlasted Mourinho on the bench in the capital, he wouldn’t manage to finish the season with Lazio, resigning from his role just days after the club issued a vote of confidence in the coach.

The most shocking sacking has been Massimiliano Allegri‘s Juventus dismissal on May 17, just two days after he led the Bianconeri to a Coppa Italia final win over Atalanta.
