He was most recently part of of Gianfranco Zola’s coaching team at Birmingham City during the 2016/17 season.
Cioffi also is an ex-footballer who played majority of his career in Serie B with 11 clubs to his name.
In a club statement, Director of Football Selim Gaygusuz said: “We had over 80 applicants for the vacancy and appointing a new Head Coach has been an exhaustive process which we started more than a week ago.
“We wanted a Head Coach with passion, dedication and someone who is prepared to work hard to improve our existing squad.
“In our extensive discussions with Gabriele we were impressed with his ideas and enthusiasm for the job and his short and long-term vision. He will inherit, in our opinion, the best squad we’ve had during our time in League Two and we are all looking forward with Gabriele to help take the club forward.”
As always football fans were quick to judge and gave their reaction, many questioning who he was – check out those tweets on the next page.
