Donadoni axed

The Italian press has blasted Italy manager Roberto Donadoni after the heavy defeat against Holland 3-0 on Monday night.

La Gazzetta dello Sport said: "Wow, what a blow! The world champions crash in their Euro 2008 debut as Van Basten triumphs 3-0"

While the Corriere dello Sport blasted the Azzuri boss saying "Donadoni disaster - The Azzurri are thrashed in their Euro 2008 opener with a 3-0 defeat against Holland"

Tuttosport had big picture of World Cup winner Marcello Lippi saying "Give us back Lippi" and "Donadoni brings Italy down with historic defeat against Holland"

All the reports slammed Don's tactics especially on the surprise omission of midfielder Daniele De Rossi preferring at him Massimo Ambrosini.

The former Livorno manager signed a two-year contract extension until 2010. However, a clause was inserted in his contract allowing both the Italian Federation and Donadoni to end their relationship within 10 days from the end of EURO 2008.
