Still reeling from last night’s 7-0 defeat to Roma, Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi and sporting director Pietro Accardi met for several hours today to discuss the team’s difficult situation.

The Tuscans have lost all four of their opening league fixtures and were dismantled by Jose Mourinho’s yesterday evening at the Stadio Olimpico. They now sit bottom of the Serie A table and still haven’t scored a goal yet conceded 12 so far this season.

With relegation a concrete threat, Tuttomercatoweb reports Empoli are expected to sack manager Paolo Zanetti in the coming hours. The club’s senior management is already discussing potential replacements with several names on the list including former Udinese boss Luca Gotti, Leonardo Semplici, and ex-Salernitana manager Davide Nicola.
