Aurelio Andreazzoli (born 5 November 1953) is an Italian football coach and manager, currently in charge of Serie A club Empoli.

Coaching career

In 2005, Andreazzoli joined Roma to become head coach Luciano Spalletti's assistant coach, becoming a valuable part of the team over the years. He was relieved from his duties after Spalletti departed Roma, but was called back after just two years to assist newly appointed caretaker manager Vincenzo Montella. Andreazzoli continued to work with Luis Enrique and Zdeněk Zeman as a technique coach.

On 2 February 2013, after Zeman was relieved from his duties, Andreazzoli was appointed as the manager until the end of the 2012–13 season.[1] His first win came in a 1–0 home win over Serie A leaders Juventus.[2] On 8 April 2013, his side drew 1–1 with Lazio in his first Derby della Capitale as Roma manager. On 17 April 2013, he led Roma to the 2012–13 Coppa Italia final with a 2–3 win over Internazionale at the San Siro. On 26 May 2013, he led Roma on the most important match of his career in the competition final against intercity rivals Lazio, which Roma lost 0–1.[3]

On 12 June 2013, Roma club president James Pallotta announced Rudi Garcia's appointment as the new manager of Roma, thereby ending Andreazzoli's spell as caretaker manager.[4]

On 17 December 2017, he was named new head coach of Serie B promotion hopefuls Empoli in place of Vincenzo Vivarini.[5] After a very successful season in which he guided Empoli to win the Serie B title and assure themselves promotion to the top flight for the 2018–19 Serie A season, his contract was extended for one more season. He was sacked on 5 November 2018.[6] He was re-appointed by Empoli on 13 March 2019.[7]

On 14 June 2019, Andreazzoli signed with Genoa[8] but was sacked on 21 October with the team in second-to-last position.[9]

On 21 June 2021, Andreazzoli agreed to return in charge of Empoli after the club's promotion to Serie A, signing a one-year contract with the Tuscanians.[10]
