Giampaolo didn’t turn up to take training on Sunday or Monday and has since turned his mobile off meaning nobody at the club has been able to contact him.
Giampaolo’s Brescia lost 2-1 at home to Crotone at the weekend, after which he held talks with a group representing the fans.
After five games, Brescia have six points following one win, three draws and a loss.
“Brescia, taking into consideration the temporary absence from training of coach Marco Giampaolo, have placed his assistants in charge of technical matters, in the hope that Giampaolo returns as soon as possible,” read a club statement.
“The club underline their total faith in the work of the coach.”
The 46-year-old was only handed the job in the summer having previously had spells in charge of Cagliari, Siena, Catania and Cesena.
“I’m hopeful that Giampaolo will return,” added president Gino Corioni.
“I want to hear what serious matter has occurred for him to react in this way. He’s not answering to anyone and I don’t know what is going on in his head right now. Perhaps he is a bit tired, but we will wait for him."
