Premier League club yet to accept his resignation
Andrea Agostinelli has resigned as coach of Premier League side Gudja United after he was offered the chance to take over the reins of Serie B side Benevento, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The Serie B side are currently in search of a new head coach after Roberto Stellone stepped down from his post following the defeat to SPAL on Monday.
The Italian club have immediately made contact with Agostinelli with a view of offering him the chance of returning at the helm of the club after an absence of ten years.
Agostinelli was appointed as coach of Gudja United at the start of the season and has enjoyed a very solid campaign with the southerners who have already reached their main objective of securing Premier League status for another season with four matches to spare.
The Times of Malta can confirm that on Monday night, Agostinelli submitted his resignation to Gudja United president Dr Duncan Borg Myatt but the club has yet to accept his resignation.
It is understood that the Gudja United top hierarchy will hold talks with Agostinelli on Tuesday with a view of reaching an agreement.
Should Gudja United agree to let Agostinelli leave the club and re-join Benevento, he will become the fourth coach to take over the reins at Benevento after Fabio Caserta, Fabio Cannavaro and Stellone.
At Benevento, Agostinelli would have a tough job on his hands to save the club from relegation to the Serie C as they are currently bottom in the Serie B standings with 29 points, five adrift of safety with six matches to go.
