Cagliari’s Mauricio Pinilla has clearly taken a leaf out of Oscar Wilde’s book, following the principle that: “consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.” The Chilean has erratically and inconsistently travelled from Scotland to Cyprus (and many places in between) in the hunt for games and goals. But only now – at his fourth top-flight Italian club – has he finally found form.
Pinilla is a curious case – a player with the r...More
Having replaced Massimo Ficcadenti at Cagliari last November, Davide Ballardini has been ousted and replaced by the same man; his 17 match reign at the Stadio Sant’ Elia ending this past weekend. President Massimo Cellino made Serie A’s 15th season coaching change after the 6-3 loss suffered against Napoli. When their four match unbeaten streak was replaced by three straight losses, the trigger-happy chief was chomping at the bit.
It has been a Jekyll and Hyde season so far for Cagliari. Last week saw Davide Ballardini’s men claim a deserved victory against Roma (a side who then dismantled Inter Milan at the weekend) which illustrates the magnitude of Cagliari’s feat.

The 23-year-old Belgian international is the main jewel of the Cagliari midfield and his progress has been monitored by Juve, Milan and Inter.
Juve director Beppe Marotta is believed to have met with Cagliari President Massimo Cellino and made an offer worth €15m. The player would receive a four year contract worth €1.8m a season.
Less than a month into the start of this season Cagliari were thrown into turmoil after a disagreement between Coach Roberto Donadoni and President Massimo Cellino. He was sacked and Massimo Ficcadenti appointed. Not much was expected with little time to prepare, however Ficcadenti masterminded an opening day win away at Roma and after five rounds the Isolani were fifth, a point from first place. The rot then set in and perhaps harshly,...More
