Palermo sack Gasperini…again
Palermo have officially announced that Gian Piero Gasperini has agreed to mutually terminate his contract.
The Rosanero lost to Siena on Sunday in what was a key match in their attempts to avoid relegation. The result now sees the team in last place, five points out of safety.
As a result President Maurizio Zamparini has sacked the Turin native for the second time this season. Gasperini was originally sacked on February 4 and replaced by Alberto Malesani. He was incredibly re-hired only 19 days later.
Palermo director Giorgio Perinetti has announced that the club will decide on a successor this evening, with Giuseppe Sannino’s return a realistic possibility.
“Between tonight and tomorrow we will have a meeting to decide on the new coach,” he told reporters.
“Sannino’s return is possible, but there is nothing official yet. We are working on it, and by tomorrow you will have news of a new coach.”
