A Lot of Kilmarnock Fans Are Buzzing with the Appointment of Angelo Alessio

Kilmarnock have appointed the successor to Steve Clarke this afternoon – and it seems supporters are absolutely delighted to see Angelo Alessio announced as their new manager.

Clarke departed Rugby Park to takeover the Scotland national team last month, having led Killie to an impressive third-place finish in the Premiership last season – the Ayrshire club’s highest top-flight finish since the 1960s.

As we told you previously, the likes of Roberto Di Matteo had been mentioned as a potential successor to Clarke, but Alessio was today unveiled as the new Kilmarnock boss, having previously assisted Antonio Conte at Chelsea, Juventus and the Italian national side.

He might not be a household name, but it seems Kille supporters are buying into the imaginative appointment:


What do you think of Alessio’s arrival into Scottish football? Is it a bold experiment that will work out?
