Francesco Guidolin has stepped down from his position as head coach of Serie A outfit Udinese.

The 58-year-old, who had brief stint in charge of the club in the late 1990s, had held the position since the summer of 2010, during which time he guided the team into the Champions League.

However, he has decided to give up the job, but will remain at the Stadio Friuli in a director of football role.

Last season, Zebrette finished 14th under Guidolin's management.
