Udinese are currently in 14 place and with a round of tough fixtures coming up when the league resumes after the winter break, the club will be hoping that their new tactician will be able to reverse their fortunes and help them get back into a European qualifying spot.
Udinese are now 5 points off the relegation zone after suffering 7 defeats in their last 10 games. Next to follow suite will be Juventus. The Turin outfit are struggling to maintain their hold on 3rd position after suffering back to back defeats to league minnows Bari and Catania.
