A city living for football: this is Foggia, a little province capital in Southern Italy.
A football team in disgrace: this is U.S. Foggia, descendend into **** in a just few years.
The very big problem is that our supporters have seen one of the best football ever, the one made by the Czech Zdenek Zeman, who brought Foggia almost in Europe during the early '90s. That's why they are often critic and skeptic about every newly-appointed manager.
Foggia is sadly lying in the "Lega Pro - 1^st Division" (former "Serie C1"), the Italian third series, having lost three playoffs in-a-row from 2007. The president, Tullio Capobianco, is giving up, so this season Foggia will just try to avoid relegation in 2^nd Division. The supporters are in riot because they have already underwent too many humiliations for years, and want their club to try to get into the "Serie B" for the fourth time.
But Capobianco was clear: limited finance, wage control and hot prospects are the club's priorities. Therefore he is looking for a young, highly-motivated manager, who could be even be liked from his supporters (that would be quite a miracle!)... and what about signing a manager from Foggia? That would make things easier: people would go to the stadium and buy season tickets, there will be no risks of hiring a mercenary...
