Former Leeds United co-owner Massimo Cellino is looking for his fifth manager of the season at Italian second-tier side Brescia after the man nicknamed the "manager eater" struck again.

Cellino, president at Brescia, left England in 2017 after three controversial years at Leeds which saw him banned three times by England's football authorities and fire six managers.

This season, however, Cellino's penchant for moving coaches on has gone into overdrive.

On Wednesday, Davide Dionigi became the latest Brescia coach to be sacked since the start of the current campaign after the team lost four Serie B games in a row.

The dismissal came two weeks after Dionigi had signed a new contract until June 2022. He oversaw 10 games in charge.

Luigi Delneri started the season in charge but lasted two matches, with Diego Lopez returning to the club and overseeing nine games before he was the next to be fired by Cellino.

Daniele Gastaldello coached one game as caretaker manager before Dionigi came in. Seeing out the remainder of the season will be a remarkable achievement for whoever comes in next.

Mussolini's great-grandson signs for Lazio's youth team

Lazio have signed Romano Floriani Mussolini, the great-grandson of Italy's former fascist leader Benito Mussolini, to their youth team.

The 18-year-old right-back has been called up to Lazio's U23 'Primavera' side for the past two matchweeks, including their 2-0 loss to Juventus on Saturday.

He has played for the U18 side managed by former Lazio striker Tommaso Rocchi.

Floriani Mussolini is the son of Benito Mussolini's granddaughter Alessandra - an Italian politician, TV personality and former member of the European Parliament.

He has decided to use both of his surnames, as allowed by Italian state law, and says he is unfazed by his links to his great-grandfather.

"Here at Lazio I'm judged only for the way I play and not because my surname is Mussolini," he told Roman daily Il Messaggero.

"I hope I can make my debut for the Primavera one day."
