Crawley appoint Gabriele Cioffi as their new head coach

League Two Crawley have appointed Italian Gabriele Cioffi as their new head coach.

Cioffi has signed a three-year contract to replace Harry Kewell, who left to take over at Notts County last week.

Crawley director of football Selim Gaygusuz told the club’s official website: “In our extensive discussions with Gabriele we were impressed with his ideas and enthusiasm for the job and his short and long-term vision.”

Cioffi is a former defender who played for 11 clubs in Italy, making nearly 400 appearances.

He was part of Gianfranco Zola’s coaching staff during his time in charge of Birmingham in the 2016/17 season.
