Serse Cosmi has been appointed the new manager at Lecce after the club dismissed Eusebio Di Francesco over the weekend.

Di Francesco was let go following Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Napoli, which left the club on the bottom of the league with one win in its last 11 matches.

The 53-year-old Cosmi was fired earlier this year by Palermo after less than three months with the team.

His first game in charge will come Saturday against Lazio.
