ROME, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chievo coach Domenico Di Carlo stepped down due to poor results, the Serie A strugglers said on their website on Tuesday.
Chievo said on their website www.chievoverona.it that the "team will be handed over to Eugenio Corini, who will be presented later in the afternoon".
Chievo now lie in third from bottom in the 20-team standings after claiming just one win from six games.
