Palermo sack Gattuso, Iachini appointed new coach

Gennaro Gattuso’s reign at Palermo has lasted only six competitive games as he was sacked today. Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has now sacked 28 managers in his 12 seasons at the Rosanero since buying the Serie B club from former AS Roma chairman Franco Sensi.

Palermo club president and owner Maurizio Zamparini : “It is with deep regret that we have had to release Gennaro Gattuso from his position as coach of the squad.

“His first serious coaching position was perhaps too big a responsibility at a club as demanding as Palermo. The results have proved us wrong. I have now given Giuseppe Iachini the job of leading us back to Serie A.
