Cristiano Lucarelli is the new technical manager of the Catania first team. He takes over from Luca Tabbani, who was dismissed on November 5, and has signed a contract until June 30, 2026. The club expressed thanks to Michele Zeoli, who will return to coach the Under 19 team. This opportunity for Lucarelli came after a change in the Serie B collective agreement, allowing managers dismissed before December 20 to be rehired in the same season. Lucarelli previously coached Catania in the 2017-18 and 2019-20 seasons. Vice president Vincenzo Grella will officially present the new coach to the media at a press conference at 6pm, which will be broadcast live on the club’s official Facebook page.
