4th Ain't Good Enough

COMO, Italy -- Sometimes an undefeated record just isn't good enough for a soccer coach.


Mario Beretta discovered that Tuesday, when he was fired by Como of the Italian third-division despite guiding the club to two wins and four draws this season. Como is fourth in the 18-team league.


"It was a tough but reasoned decision," Como president Enrico Preziosi said. "I respect Beretta as a coach and I'm sure that with a little time he'd have helped us get promoted. Unfortunately, we don't have time to lose."
