Fiorentina have sacked manager Emiliano Mondonico after the newly-promoted side's poor start to the season.
It comes just months atfer he was hailed as a hero for returning them to the top flight.
The decision comes the day after the 2-2 draw away to Udinese which leaves them near the relegation zone with seven points from seven games.
Mondonico will be replaced on a caretaker basis by goalkeepers' coach Sergio Buso.
